Happier than ever (song) kinda sounds like Creep, by Radiohead???
Like the first part sounds like a slow down version of Creeps melody. Then, on the second part she goes OFF!! It also remind me of Radiohead but no song in particular, more like a vibe from their early era
Anyway, the title track is AMAZING! Truly something! She did THAT
Ive only heard beggining of some of the other songs, maybe will get to fully listen as days go by, the usual Billie sound is not my cup of thea. I actually wish Billie will someday make an album full of “Happier than ever” type of songs, that rock vibe, im sure it’ ll slapJuly 29, 2021 at 9:58 pm #1204371288
My top 5 songs on Happier Than Ever:
First – Happier Than Ever title track
2. Halley’s Comet
5. Therefore I AmJuly 29, 2021 at 11:02 pm #1204371346
Does anyone else feel that this album should’ve been a surprise drop with only one lead single? The singles are sounding much better in context with the album.July 29, 2021 at 11:48 pm #1204371389
Happier than ever (song) is OUTSTANDING. Truly one of the best songs of the year. And I’m definitely NOT a Billie fan. But they truly served with that song. It is AMAZING.July 30, 2021 at 2:31 am #1204371534

I agree. Too many singles. She should’ve dropped NDA as the lead on the day she did (9th July) & then announced the album that day too for a 3 week build up.July 30, 2021 at 3:02 am #1204371563
Wow, it’s hard to sum this album up in a few words, but Billie and Finneas have significantly improved in songwriting since Billie’s breakthrough years. When it comes to production though I feel like Finneas created beats that suit Billie’s style well, but played it safe a little too much throughout the album. It’s a step down in production from WWAFAWDWG? and overall a grower but still quite decent.

Okay, the album had a little weak/er writing. imo (?) First half was a little lackluster. Good listen. But it felt long and drowsy. “Happier than Ever” is a spectacular song. Agree. The rock/punk sound really suited her well.
Happier Than Ever, NDA, OverHeated, Therefore I Am, Your Power, Billie Bossa Nova, Halley’s Comet.
**I never do album reviews or rankings for a reason. Never did one for Olivia, should’ve never done one for Billie.July 30, 2021 at 8:32 am #1204371997
I cannot enjoy every single songs in this album but the title track like everything i wanted alone outdid this albumJuly 30, 2021 at 9:11 am #1204372043
Different strokes for different folks. I tried getting into HTE but couldn’t. “Halley’s Comet” is cute though.
