Post Malone - Twelve Carat Toothache (2022)

Reason for Listening:

Last Week: 143 | Peak: 2 | Weeks on Chart: 30

Released 20220603.
14 songs. 43:18. Twelve Carat Toothache (2022)
14+2 songs. 43:18+06:14. Twelve Carat Toothache (Deluxe) (2022)
First listen.
Listened to the first seven tracks.
First complete listen. Deluxe edition.
Huh. Given the other tracks, it was a big surprise to get a track with a drastically different beat ("One Right Now")

Songs in bold are the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition.
3: "I Like You (A Happier Song)" (ft. Doja Cat)*; "One Right Now" (with The Weeknd);
2: "Cooped Up" (ft. Roddy Ricch)*; "Lemon Tree"; "Waiting for Never";
1: "Reputation"; "Wrapped Around Your Finger"; "I Cannot Be (A Sadder Song)" (ft. Gunna)*; "Love/Hate Letter To Alcohol" (ft. Fleet Foxes)*; "Wasting Angels" (ft. The Kid LAROI)*;
0: "Insane"; "Euthanasia"; "When I'm Alone"; "Waiting for a Miracle"; "new Recording 12, Jan 3, 2020"; "Hateful";

This album is a departure from Post Malone's previous albums. Unfortunately, my expectation for both a similar sound and level of enjoyment results in a perceived experience of about 4.0 out of 5 stars.

During my initial ratings, "One Right Now" was a "3" and "I Like You (Happier Song)" was only a "2". This didn't make sense as the latter is an enjoyable song, and one that I happen to like just a bit more than the former.

Overall Rating: 4.0/5
Favorite Song: "I Like You (Happier Song)" (ft. Doja Cat)

*Wikipedia lists these tracks as "[song title] (featuring [artist name])" whereas Spotify lists them as "[song title] (with [artist name])". The only track where Wikipedia also uses "with" is "One Right Now".
