I'm keeping some of the Max Martin tracks + Bigger Than Me. The rest is different levels of mediocre and bland.

The song "Witness" grows on me enormously. It is really addictive.

Btw - what does an A&R person do on an album like "Witness"?

Are they the ones who decide which of the songs will be on the album? Or are they listening to external demos?


Did Max approve all songs as an executive producer?

The A&R represents the label's position about the tracks that make the cut.

Katy is the kind of artists that reworks the songs over and over again.
She said she had 40 songs for the album.

This is kinda similar to what happened with the last 2 albums of Madonna, especially in rebel heart, which is an odd concept, with some cringy music, with good demos (leaked) and awesome producers.

Amazingly bad album, not one hit, not even one catchy song.  Sounds like shit.

oh dear. Saved As Draft as a single? Terrible choice. It's like Wide Awake but not as good.

I like Pendulum.

The songs 1-4 and 8-12 (except 10) are the best ones.

Roulette and Bon Appétit are my favorites right now.

Has anyone heard Max's tooth yet? According to the booklet they're part of Roulette. Also flawless backing vocals on Witness, Max! 8)
