How is this a quarantine album? The tracks feel super rushed to the point where they still sound like demos-though to be fair she created this album in like a couple of weeks. This didn’t deserve the title of an album, this should’ve been another mixtape considering how rough and glitchy the tracks were. The standout tracks for me were “c2.0” and “7 years”, but even then those two were too glitchy for me. The only polished track was “party 4 u”, but to be honest that track was made years before this album came to fruition. What’s even weirder is the track “claws”, this is very simplistic, the track is very very shallow, lyrically and sonically, not that much substance to be found. nearly all of the tracks in this album are disposable, you can just tell they were trying to make the album sound distant and “quarantine-y” while actually being in quarantine-you just get a big mess of sounds. None of the tracks in general were memorable. It’s sad cause Charli’s 2 mixtapes beat what we have going on here. Even though her fan base got very involved in the creative process of this album, it just didn’t work out, which is fine, it’s just that this wasn’t a good approach to an album. Somehow with the rollout, Charli spent all her “decent” songs from the album and left the mediocre ones on here.
On further note, some of the other lyrics on this album were very questionable, “we took a dive, in your mind”, and “I just wanna go real hard, pink diamond in the dark”, how does this even relate to quarantine?? Perfectly good scenarios in quarantine could’ve been used, from unemployment to fear. Quarantine isn’t just about parties for one and not giving a ****. Try again
