Demi Lovato's 2017 album Tell Me You Love Me is pop perfection.

I was listening to it last night, and I forgot how precious it is.

The sound suits her so well. The songs don't feel forced or overly dramatic like some of her other works. 

"Sorry Not Sorry" is her best lead single to-date and still sounds fresh in 2020. Fight me :demi:

"Daddy Issues" is such a wild song. The topic is legit pretty dark, but it's disguised behind a bright chorus and slick production. 

Then, the Holy Trinity on TMYLM: "Games," "Hitchhiker" and "Concentrate," all appearing in succession. I love when an album has three flawless songs in a row. :yesplease: Interestingly, the latter two sound very similar production-wise, but they take off in different directions when the vocals hit. 

She also had a freaking song with Lil Wayne which, at first glance, seems kinda out of place, but it's just not. The icy beat, the hollow clap-beats, Wayne's auto-tune-tastic verse... it's a smooth listen. 

Demi is kind of having trouble finding her sound lately. I know TMYLM can't be duplicated, but if she went for this sound again I bet she'd have a lot of success. 

Do we have any TMYLM stans here? What's your favorite song (mine is "Games")? Or if you don't like the album, I'm curious to hear why.

Can't stand listening to her. She's not a vocalist - (in my head I hear New York saying "she's not a SONGSTRESS" about Krazy :yesokay:) she shouts and screams through her nose. Her songs have become progressively more formulaic and boring IMO. Never really could be bothered to listen to much more than a few tracks, and I remain unimpressed. Sorry, not sorry. :chrissy:
