It's been out for almost 3 days now and we've not had much time for it to settle yet, but based on your first impressions, we're asking you to rate each song on Phoenix! We'll host another rate in a few months to see how things change biggrin.gif

The usual rules apply: an 11 if you want, a -1 if you want (although I'd be surprised if you feel the need to use it on such a brilliant album), rate everything else between 0 and 10 and half marks are allowed.

EVERYTHING IS SO GOOD. Think Keep Talking will be one of the biggest growers actually, it's creeping up on me already, as is Falling to Pieces!

Don't get me wrong, I love it, but it sounds so out of place on this album, I almost have to skip it - but then I remember every stream counts and I leave it on.

If it were on an album of similar bops, it would probably get an 8.5 max and that's the tea x

Really hard to rate because the quality is just so good throughout! I don't usually do decimal places in rates but felt I needed to be more specific in this case. Such a great pop album and I found the songs very smartly distributed regarding the singles and album tracks, the upbeat and downtempo songs; everything seems to lift one another and keeps the album engaging.

'First Time High' sounds like a future single to me.

Anywhere and Lonely Together are career highlights. Before the albums release I probably would (and I think did) rate LT above it but it just works so well as an opener and I'm as hooked now as I was 12 months ago tbh

Your Song and For You have gone down over time as I've grown tired of them and Girls I never liked (soz x) but everything else is fairly good. I can see Summer Love growing on me the more I listen to the album + Only Want You will certainly grow more as a single

Unless I'm forgetting anyone major I'd rate this my #2 pop female album of 2018 below Ariana's Sweetener and just above Camila's self-titled.
