Re: Ellie Goulding - New Album 'Halcyon' preview post #60

The Deluxe tracks are so amazing, I'm so sad they didn't make the actual album.

What does everyone think? I love it! Tracks 2-5 alone are better than the entirety of Lights.

The one track I didn't immediately like, Explosions, has finally grown on me, so yeah, I absolutely love it. I love that she didn't try to make the most catchy hooks and such, but instead tried to create an atmosphere.

Re: Ellie Goulding - New Album 'Halcyon' Oct.8th 2012!

Ohh I love Explosions. The only song I haven't gotten into yet is Don't Say a Word. And I was so used to the single edit of Anything Could Happen that it's taking a while to get used to the album version. Only You is so dancey; I love to jam out to it. And I absolutely love Halcyon. I really relate to the lyrics.

Yeah. That's what I realised too. Tracks 2-5 just scream of "awards".

But I really hate Joy.

A great album. Dead In The Water, Atlantis, Joy and I Know You Care are alright though. Other 13 Songs = Love. Absolute Love.

And I agree, it is taking some getting used to album version of Anything Could Happen.

Re: Ellie Goulding - New Album 'Halcyon' Oct.8th 2012!

It seems on ATRL a lot of people didn't like Joy at first, but it's a grower. I haven't really heard enough of it yet to have an opinion.

I am kind of over Hanging On though. Maybe it's because I prefer the original. Not sure. And I hope I Know You Care is a grower because I really didn't like it the first time I heard it.

Re: Ellie Goulding - New Album 'Halcyon' Oct.8th 2012!

If I had a choice I'd remove Don't Say a Word, Joy, I Know You Care for the three bonus tracks.
It's just too sappy for me, and I'm really an emo guy too.

I haven't heard the bonus tracks yet. I didn't see any Deluxe versions for sale (not that I could have afforded it anyway). The CD I bought has the Calvin Harris song (I am not a fan of him) and Lights as bonus tracks.

^Ritual, In My City, and Without Your Love are the ones you are missing.

I love Don't Say a Word, the first 6 songs are great IMO! Then it starts to tail off a bit....until the bonus tracks.

It sounds a bit distorted but not as bad as what some people did to Florence

Stay Awake and The Ending are pretty good too

If I could make one change, I would've swapped Hanging On for Ritual.
