Really can't decide, it's either fucking magnificent or just not really Grimes...
It should (deservedly) make her huge though.
I can see why Rihanna rejected it, and it's going to alienate Grimes fan base. But considering how her last albums were I'm not against it at all, because whilst she had some cracking singles, the albums were far too samey. But not sure about this particular song.
super generic, boring structure, just BLAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
The chorus probably succeeds in being what the kids would call 'a banging tune' though so it might do well in the charts.
She's an idiot
And she donated to another charity. It's hardly on a level with Morrissey saying it's OK to try and kill the researchers who do animal testing.
I just made a few comments before lunch hoping to start massive arguments, but it's not been very successful
There was a definite sense if it all being Grimes' own thing whilst this just sounds like an attempt at contemporary pop box-ticking- RnB, the 'Drop', Trap etc. The other tracks she released were dull too. Seems to be a lot acts going for super polished and flat production at the moment. See: Merchandise.
they had a free mini service that would drive you from one end of the festival site to the other. Just a load of minis on rotation. Each car had a limited playlist of some songs by bands performing at the festival. Anxiety's Door came on during one of the journies and part way through the driver just snapped "who the fuck even is this shit, it sounds like U2" and then turned the radio off.
I actually quite like their earlier big anthemic riffing and wall of noise schtick. The new record though.... MORchandise. sorry. not sorry.
I'm surprised a bit that so many people hate it.
