fine line: the first listen

Hi loves,

As you may (or may not) know, Harry’s album came out last Friday and I’ve been so excited for it that I thought I’d write all my first reactions down here !! I haven’t edited it so it’ll probably sound crazy and make no sense and I’m literally just yelling in caps for most of it so if you find that annoying please don’t read this post (I apologise) but if you haven’t already listened to the album then please do !! I’ll link all the songs here anyway but it really is a masterpiece ✨ I PROMISE YOU.

the noise ??? the intro??? OH MY GOD HE’S SINGING LIKE A CHOIR ??? WAIT IT’S LIKE ACTUAL HEAVEN. WAIT HE SOUNDS SO NICE. “i knew you were way too bright for me” PLEEEASE. “so you wait for me in the sky” HELLO ??? LYRICS ???? NICE. WHAT IS THIS CHORUS LIKE SINGING CAN WE STOP THAT. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING. IT’S TOO GOOD. THIS IS SUCH A CUTE INTRO SONG TO THE ALBUM PLEASE WHY IS THIS SO CUTE. HE SOUNDS LIKE A BABY. OKAY THIS CHORUS LIKE SINGING I SWEAR THERE’S A NAME FOR IT IDK BUT I REALLY LIKE IT THIS IS WHAT YOU HEAR WHEN YOU APPROACH THE GATES OF HEAVEN. i’m probably not going there but whatever ANYWAY WOW THE GUITAR JUST CAME IN SCREEEEEEE OK NICE. THIS IS SO NICE WOWIE. I’M GRATEFUL HE’S GOING EASY ON US FOR THE INTRO BEFORE HE RAMPS IT UP AND RUINS MY LIFE.

Of course, as this was released before the album I’ve already spoken about this song which you can seeΒ here.Β 

adore you

This one was also released before the album and it would’ve gone in this month’s monthly music post but of course, it’s part of the album so I’ll just talk about it here instead.Β I absolutely love it.Β It’s so…psychedelic almost, does that make sense? I love the note changes he does every time he sings the second line of adore you in the chorus and the whole thing is just super beautiful. Love love love.

OKAY I PRESSED PLAY HNHAHJSDJ JESUS. WAIT IT’S SO CUTE ??? THIS INTRO IS LIKE SOMETHING YOU HEAR ON THOSE SUMMER ADVERTS. IS IT GONNA BE SAD PLEASE NO. OH NO. OH NO OH NO. THESE LYRICS. SAD BOI HOURS ARE HERE. STOP. “I can tell you are at your best” WHATHSN STOP HE’S SO NICE. “there’s a piece of you in how I dress” WHAHJAEJKD STOP OK SHUT UP STOP THIS IS SO SWEET. I’M SAD. IT’S LITERALLY 9AM IT’S TOO EARLY FOR THIS. I THOUGHT HE WAS GONNA SAY “I just miss your accent and your French” DO YOU THINK THAT WAS A PLAY ON WORDS I. “Does he take you walking round his parents’ gallery” I WAS WAITING FOR THIS I CAN’T BELIEVE. OK NOW HE’S SCREAMING IN THE BACKGROUND I WANNA DIE. PLEASE THAT SOUNDED SO GOOD. This is so beautiful and nice I’m so sad for him:( wowie.

THE END IS COMING. I’M SCARED. OK IT’S ABOUT TO PLAY. IT’S ABOUT TO PLAY HHNAHSDJ THE MUSIC IS. OK IDK WHAT SHE’S SAYING BUT IT SOUNDS ANGELIC. OK SHE JUST SAID HIS NAME. I’M GOOGLING. LET ME GOOGLE. OK THAT’S TOO MUCH I’M PLAYING IT AGAIN. THE WAY SHE SAYS HARRY OK SAD BOI HOURS REALLY ARE HERE I NEVER WANT TO HEAR THIS SONG AGAIN IT’S TOO NICE. I’M SO SAD.

I DON’T NEED THIS I DO NOT NEED THIS. oh i’m sad :((((((( WOW THAT VOICE “what if i’m someone i don’t want around” i’m gonna cry. im HNASDJ SHUT UP “what if I’m someone you won’t talk about” :((((. “and i’m well aware i write too many songs about you” ok i’m smiling. ok i’m not smiling anymore this is too sad can he shut up THIS CHORUS IS SO GOOD I HATE IT. “and i get the feeling that you’ll never need me again” FUCK OFF. THAT HIGH NOTE ???? PLEASE. ok the song isn’t even finished yet and i’m already done with it this is so beautiful and sad I DON’T NEED THIS.

to be so lonely

I haven’t even pressed play yet but sad boi hours is at its all time high and this title doesn’t look promising. OK THE BANJO ??? IS THAT A BANJO ??? CUTE. CUTE HARRY. APPROVED. I feel like he’s saying lots of deep things on this album but the music kinda distracts from it for being so light / happy. Clever. “son of a bitch” DID HE JUSSSTTTTJSD. “don’t call me baby again” WEEEOOEW. This chorus is so good “don’t call me baby again you got your reasons” LOVE. I love this self awareness this song is like..wow we love people who are self aware. This chorus is so catchy APPROVED. This is gonna be in my head for ages I can just tell. Idk what my favourite song is yet it might be this one ??? It’s so catchy .!!

WAIT. IT’S THE SAME INTRO AS MEET ME IN THE HALLWAY? HANG ON A DINGLE DARN MINUTE. REPLAYING. OK IT’S THE SAME BEAT AS MEET ME IN THE HALLWAY. This intro is so cool I can see like a 50s bar and everyone’s hidden by cigarette smoke this is cool. This is so retro wowie I love. Where are these lyrics going ok wow this is ????? This is the best story !! This is so cool did I say that already. WOW OKAY. HOLY SHIT. WHAT IS THIS VOICE ???? WHAT’S THIS WHERE HAS THIS BEEN HIDING FOR 10 YEARS. THIS IS SO COOL ??????? Ok I think this is my favourite one !! Were they all on acid when they made this. THE CHORUS IS SO GOOD HE BETTER PERFORM THIS LIVE NEXT YEAR ELSE I’M RIOTING. IT’S SO GOOD HOLY. SO CLEVER. Some of these lines are so cool like wow. OK THE CHORUS AGAIN CAN WE STOP THAT. WHO ALLOWED THIS. IT’S SO COOL ??????????? I KNOW I’VE ALREADY SAID THAT. Ok 100% this is my favourite one so far. It’s !! So !! Good !! WAIT I JUST CHECKED THE TIME IT’S 6 MINS LONG ??? 6 MINUTES OF THIS ??? Sign me up I bet there’s a fat guitar solo coming soon. OK THERE IT IS. HERE IT IS I KNEW IT. Wow this’ll be so good on tour. I love the intro and the solo so much :((( it’s so good.

sunflower, vol. 6 🌻

I have no idea what this one is about so I’m going into it blind. OKAY IT’S SO HAPPY ?? AND CUTE. WOW CUTE. “kiss in the kitchen like it’s a dancefloor” so cute. please. “tired eyes are the death of me” same. THAT SHARP INTAKE OF BREATH??? WHAT’S THAT ALL ABOUT. This song is literally so cute I’m sad for him wowie 😦 the way he keeps using “melody” in the lyrics I love it. Ok these little noises at the end are making me smile. This is so happy and sweet I lovelovelovelove. He’s a sunflower.

canyon moon

This is the one I’ve been most excited for because of the name (no surprise there) so I’m excited to hear what it sounds like !!

WHY DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A GEORGE MICHAEL INTRO I LOVE ???? Ok this is so country please. Love. Ok idk who Jenny is but it’s gonna come to me some time in the middle of the night. This is so dance-y and sweet eeeeeee. This will be so cute on tour I hope he performs it !!

treat people with kindness

Ok another one I’m really excited to hear since this phrase is essentially the centre / epitome of H. I’m excited to hear what the lyrics are.

A CHOIR ??? HELLO YES. Ok I can see where this song is going. Oh his voice is so sweet :(( I love how he’s singing this. “and if our friends all pass away it’s okay” let’s not do that. OK THAT SCREAM ???? YES. Omg these shouts in the background I looooove this. So feel good !!!

fine line

Oh the intro is so beautiful and soft already. “You’ve got my devotion but man I can hate you sometimes” wow. Oh this is really sad 😦 I’m sad. I can see why he said this means a lot to him now. You can feel it. Oh my god this is so sad ???? What the hell you can literallyΒ feelΒ it. Holy. This is so beautiful oh my God. This is so beautiful I love this so much. Wow. What a brilliant way to end the album.

    You are so alike me in music and book taste! I stayed up until midnight on Friday 13th so that I could listen immediately. Falling and Golden are some of my favourites on the album but they’re all so brilliant! Glad you enjoyed it too.
