I enjoyed this review very much. It catches so much of the nuanced effectiveness of a skilled craftsperson who gets it that music is art and not just radio fodder. Lorde’s music is so different from the “charts” induced formula that so many interpret as “successful.” Her success is as a truly creative talent who remains independent and yet still manages to make us dance and sing along. She is likely number one on the ear worm chart. So happy to have been invited to the party.
