Worst album of 2015?
I nominate this or Handwritten by Shawn Mendes.
Both are fucking vile.
Can I get an honest opinion on Lido's production on this album? My impression of Halsey herself, her vocals, lyrical content, personality etc have only been from /mu/ and so I'm hesitant to give it a go because of that, but Lido is an insane songwriter and so I think I'll listen to it just for that.
Anyway, honest opinion /mu/, are the actual songs (not Halsey) on this album any good? Help me make a lazy, informed opinion before I actually listen to it myself like the fucking drone that I am.
Meaghan Trainor's album, anything by Pentatonix, Speeding Bullet to Heaven, and Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz comes to mind.
You're just mad at how well of a response it got
Yep that's exactly what I thought too. There's none of his usual charm, which is unfortunate. To be fair they're not supposed to take centre stage, and there's some elements that I recognise as being his but overall I don't think the songs themselves stand out too much.
I can disagree with your opinion, but I can't say you're wrong for having one. I still wouldn't say it was the worst of the year even if I hated it though, but to each their own I guess.
also probably the most disappointing sophomore of the last 20 years
I thought they were okay from what little I heard from Shrines but this was not worth listening to.
