Positions and safety net are the only two I really love after one listen. This album reminds me of Mac's Divine Feminine in tone, just less ambitious in sound.

Going to wait for 320 before I listen to something this important.

I just listened to this before and it sounds pretty good for a 128, understand if people want to wait though

One or two I'm not keen on but a great album!! I was expecting it to be way more sexual and boundary pushing though, based on the titles. My Hair is a potential smash, she needs to use the potential.

Summers, I've actually never understood why 128 leaks exist (or why 128kbps exists at all since hard drives became so much larger over the last 10 years).  Is it because of streaming rips?  While you guys are good about not transcoding stuff, too many people on the internet cheat for me to value 128 ever being out there.

I can't see her in a diva light; she'll always be adorable tiny Cat Valentine with the dyed red hair and the Bibble addiction.  Adorably stupid one minute and then catches you off guard with the killer vocals the next. :D

128s come from a few places like from a review site, a stream from somewhere or from the artist themselves who keep a 128 in case it does leak somehow cause some people will rather not listen to the 128. Also they can leak it themselves cause after all it does get a bunch of attention before the official release.

Wow, the thing about an artist self-leaking a low quality listen for first impression is pretty staggering to me logically.  If I was an artist operating at an international level of exposure, I would NEVER want people's first impression of my new music release to be smashed aural garbage.  I've literally put off on purchasing albums before because I heard fake 320 leaks and assumed them to be terrible mix/mastering jobs and later realized I was given the wrong impression.  A lot of amateur listeners won't even put in that middling level of effort and bother to learn what different bitrates are, so could make blanket assumptions based off of the 128.

Well the thing is with lower bit rate to 320 they are upping the quality/how loud it is overall so the impurities of the transcode is shown more but sometimes the only versions which are available are transcode so it sucks

 

Also yeah an artist wouldn't tend to leak it lower quality but its not that unlikely to happen

It’s very okay. Not nearly as good as her last record, but a fun pop record. Main issue here is that the production on almost every song sounds extremely similar that it’s hard to distinguish the songs from one another.

Do we know writers/producers for the full album?

Kind it sounds like a continuation of her last record. With the single, I was expecting more upbeat r&b ari but it was mostly slow songs which is still great. Another ari record is always welcomed, just hope she will eventually return to her “roots” and be a diva and belt out lines like she used to on her first 2 records

Just use an application called fakin the funk. It tells you if the files are actually 320 or fake.

Not really going to get into using that application but learning how to read specs yourself is probably better than using it, its not always reliable in past experiences

I'm starting to see 320 go up on Soulseek but not sure if I can trust it lol

 

Anyways, I don't even care if it's not as good as the last one cause the last one was a masterpiece, all I care about is the fact that this album is gonna be horny as shit.
