    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.

    This song will definitely end up on a playlist next to Dragon. I love it.

    The reactions here are surprising to me. I think it blows Up The Creek out of the water. My favourite after Reindeer King out of the 4 tracks so far.

    I'm really loving the sound of all the tracks we've heard so far - this one surprised me again, in a good way. Lots of detail going on in the music, sounds that make you want to listen again. The vocal is great! It's really exposed compared to the other tracks, but she handles it beautifully to my ears.

    You know what's hitting me again and again is how each track so far is its own little world. It feels like she has actually devoted time and effort to making them all *sound* different from each other, and yet they sound cohesive together.

    It reminds me of the ad libs in Wait Until Tomorrow. Really dig the song, not the vocals. But I like.
