First listen. Deluxe
I watched the music video for this song near the time of the release, and I thought it sounded okay ("New Shapes"); today, however, I just listened to the song as part of the album and it somehow sounded much better - perhaps I the visuals of the music video distracted me from the song
"Baby" somehow reminds me of Michael Jackson's music; maybe the sound and/or pace of the lyrics - kind of choppy with some speedups
Second listen. Deluxe
I didn't like "Yuck" the first time I heard it, being annoyed by the repetition of the word "yuck." However, on a second listen, I liked the beat and overall sound of the track

Songs in bold are the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition.
3: "Crash"; "Used to Know Me";
2: "New Shapes" (ft. Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek); "Move Me"; "Baby"; "Yuck"; "What You Think About Me";
1: "Good Ones"; "Lightning"; "Every Rule"; "Twice"; "How Can I Not Know What I Need Right Now"; "Sorry if I Hurt You";
0: "Constant Repeat"; "Beg for You" (ft. Rina Sawayama); "Selfish Girl";

This album has some good beats with various tracks channeling the 80s and 90s.

Overall Rating: 4.6/5
Favorite Song: "Crash"
