    This is a good pop song. She sure knows how to write melodies.

    Wings... wow, love it. Higher voice but not baby, IMO. I love that on her 15th album she is still doing new things and surprising us.

    I had to go to a computer to get it to work.

    I kinda like it but I only listened once and I dont wanna listen again until I have the whole album.

    I really like the song but I can't help but think how completely different it could feel/sound in a really low register.

    I like it more with repeated listens. The melody is lovely.

    Wings... yikes. If the vocal mix wasn't so much higher than the music behind it. "Hurt you, Hurt me" really hurts my ears.

    The love fest couldn't continue forever.

    3/4 songs being amazing isn't that bad.

    Wings is beautiful. It sounds very "current." And the more I listen, the more I'm catching these moody synths.

    My only gripe is that she is singing so high! It doesn't sound bad, but the vocals are UP THERE

    Maybe it's the anticipation talking, but I kind of love this song. There's something vaguely...calypso about it? Between Wings and UTC, I'm really appreciating her experimentation on this album.

    Listening now, and the William Orbit comparison is a good shout. I'm enjoying it, not withstanding the various obvious criticisms... lack of breath in the vocal production, too much upper register, etc. It's interesting.

    Listening. It's SO different! I was trying to localize it in the stream and thought it was someone else's song. I like the feel. Feels very "I'll Remember" meets "Teardrop" in the background. The voice is high but it's not jarring. Totally unexpected, but in a good way.

    'To cry baby' line sounding like 'Don't cry baby' in Trouble's Lament.
