I HATE EVERYBODY is the best song released in 2020 so far.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJanuary 17, 2020 at 12:26 pm #1203289592
I actually think that 3am is the best track on the album.

I don’t like Halsey. I think she tries to hard to be edgy and often just falls miserably flat.
However, Manic is probably one of the best pop releases I’ve heard in the past 12 months. This whole albums feels so unique and focused.
I really love the songs where she’s paired with more acoustic elements like Graveyard, 3am, Forever, and specially Finally//beautiful stranger, which is the best song she’s ever released IMO.
I also think all songs work perfectly into telling her story. The rock songs are also some of the best (Alanis Interlude, 3am, killing boys) and the softer songs sound gorgeous (Suga’s Interlude, More). Even Without Me sounds pretty great in the context of the album.
There are a couple songs that fall flat (clementine and Still Learning) and also a couple that could be better (I HATE EVERYBODY and You should be sad) but overall even those songs are still decent or good and paint the story well enough.
You should be sad 7/10
Forever (is a long time) 9/10
Dominic’s Interlude 9/10
I HATE EVERYBODY 7/10
Without Me 7/10
Finally//beautiful stranger 10/10
Alanis’ Interlude 8/10
killing boys 9/10
SUGA’s Interlude 8/10
Still Learning 5/10

Deborah Dugan being removed as Recording Academy President is a big story and rightfully so, but she is not coming back. Whatever happens now or whatever allegations are made, this is now all about her compensation package that will run into millions of dollars.
If there are voting/nomination irregularities or other forms of wrong doing, these are mostly getting swept under the carpet.
“What has been reported is not nearly the story that needs to be told,” said Ms. Dugan’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman. “When our ability to speak is not restrained by a 28-page contract and legal threats, we will expose what happens when you ‘step up’ at the Recording Academy, a public nonprofit.”
Part of her generous exit package will most likely include a long term non-disclosure agreement. Later on we might find some people quietly leave.
After the legal fees and paying compensation, the Grammys are going to need to make more savings in an era where many smaller artists are struggling, but labels are making huge profits. The labels might have to rescue the Grammys, but they are going to want something in return.January 18, 2020 at 8:46 am #1203290625
The labels might have to rescue the Grammys, but they are going to want something in return.
Hmmm, what would they want in return? You could think of this situation like the network TV stations debating even hosting the Emmys when all the nominees are cable or online, but all of the Grammy nominees are on major record labels. Even if it is not the biggest stars that win, they still share major labels with the “indie” artists.
So what could the labels possibly want?January 18, 2020 at 11:18 am #1203290788

manic finally lives up to the promise of halsey’s debut, a mainstream singer-songwriter that doesn’t live in any kind of a fantasy bubble
