Next up it's time for forum party #4 with Ariana's penultimate studio album 'Sweetener'! This album features the top 10 singles 'no tears left to cry', 'God is a woman' and 'breathin', plus a further top 40 hit in title track 'Sweetener'. This will start at 8:30pm BST tonight and the running time is around 47 minutes. If you weren't able to make any of the previous parties and would like to know how they work, then here is a recap of my explanation:

Hi all hi.gif

Recently the Kylie and Spice Girls forums have showcased the brilliant idea of forum album parties. The way this works is simultaneously starting an album at the same time and commenting along with each track in the thread. I was wondering if there would be interest in doing the same with each album for Ariana? She only has 5 studio albums so not too daunting a task! I see a lot of comments on here saying that people haven't heard 'Yours Truly' before so this would be a great opportunity to rectify this.

There would be a separate session for every album with a decided day and time where we'd all start and comment along.
QUOTE(Jade @ May 11 2020, 12:12 AM) *

We all listen separately and just start at the same time so we're in sync! I used Spotify for the Spice Girls one for instance but whatever works for you - iTunes, a YouTube playlist of the album etc. I'll drop a YouTube embed of each song in the thread as it starts too.

It's done this way and not on plug to encourage the discussion to take place in the AF and not offsite if that makes sense! We all live comment along in here happy.gif

Here's how the Spice Girls one worked: http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.php?s...t&p=6532317


Alternatively, here is a link to the 'Dangerous Woman' party to get more of a feel for how it worked in action.

I hope that's clear enough but feel free to ask any questions if you need to!

Here are some handy links for tonight:

SPOTIFY



APPLE MUSIC



YOUTUBE



See you later cheer.gif

Do you know what, I'll admit I don't actually mind blazed that much. I think it has pretty catchy moments.

Hmmm this week I think I'll have a cocktail. I'm probably going to need it.

I'll be here! cheer.gif

I don't actually dislike or hate 'sweetener'. I just hate the tracklisting order. It's so mismatched and disjointed right off the bat.

I only ever listen to it in my own curated playlist!



It honestly really bugs and pisses me off that 'raindrops (an angel cried)' doesn't mix into the video version of 'no tears left to cry'... like who decided not to do that!? drama.gif

Here and ready!

Sweetener ranks 4/5 out of her albums for me but does include what is possibly my favourite song from her.

Raindrops is cute but not her best intro.

'Raindrops' is such a beautiful opener, her vocals are literally astonishing. A goddess.

'blazed' get's so much hate, but I love Ari's tone in it! I mean... not a highlight, but still not terrible.

Loooove 'raindrops (an angel cried)' as an opener but as everyone seems to agree on - that transition to 'blazed' is not great :') I adored her leading into 'God is a woman' on tour. Or as Jonjo said earlier, 'no tears left to cry' would be a good'un for track #2 as well. 'blazed' as a song in its own right is solid enough.

We love this underrated album cheer.gif

A beautiful intro with those VOCALS FROM THE ANGELS *.*

Blazed gets a hard time but it's a bop music.gif One of the weakest on the album but then the album has so many highs x
