Hello everyone hi.gif

Time for us Ari mods to present you with the first event that we'll be working on together! It came to our attention that neither 'sweetener' or 'thank u, next' have been rated yet... so we thought why not combine BOTH albums in one big rate! After all, Ariana has combined these two eras for her latest tour and some of the merchandise even says 'thank u, sweet' on it, hence the very name of this rate *.* We will combine both of the albums when presenting the results (highlighting how many songs are dropping out of each album as we go along in the commentary, so you can follow that too) just to do something a bit different! All you will need to do is rate the songs on both albums out of 10. However, you are allowed one 11 and one -01 (across both albums, not one per album). Deadline is Sunday 9th June 2019 at 23:59pm, which spans over three weekends, so hopefully enough time for some re-listens or even first time listens. Happy rating!

On average:
Sweetener 8.80
Thank u, next 8.33

TLIC, Borderline, Better Off and In My Head (Sweetener in general ngl) deserve SO MUCH MORE :'( I'm scared the album tracks on Sweetener will be done dirty by this rate.

Tu,n is such a good album!! My issue with Sweetener is the running order. I feel it flows much stronger in this order:

- Raindrops
- no tears left to cry
- God is a woman
- blazed
- the light is coming
- R.E.M.
- breathin'
- borderline
- sweetener
- successful
- everytime
- Pete Davidson
- better off
- get well soon
- goodnight n go

One album is mediocre bar a couple of bops (the singles a couple of album tracks), the other is incredible.

I'd already heard all but 3 songs from 'thank u, next' ('in my head' was one of the 3 I had not heard yet so that was a good discovery) but had only heard the singles from 'sweetener'. 'thank u, next' is definitely a lot more consistent/cohesive while the singles were the main highlights of 'sweetener', not really much else on there that I'd ever want to listen to tbh but I did like 'everytime' a fair bit (and I deducted 0.5 from 'the light is coming' for the Nicki part which I didn't really like, the rest was a bop x)
