[The Atlantic: Solar Power is a rock nostalgist’s dream]
As Lorde’s “Solar Power” meditates on the tension between achievement and comfort, it grazes masterpiece status. @skornhaber reviews the pop star’s long-awaited, surprisingly upbeat new album:https://t.co/LQVG21g6Ab— The Atlantic (@TheAtlantic) August 19, 2021
- Like a lot of the other recent pop albums produced by Jack Antonoff, Solar Power is a rock nostalgist’s dream. It emphasizes how psychedelia has evolved over the decades: A Laurel Canyon quaver, a progressive-metal melody, and a Zero 7 sound effect might all brighten a single song. Lorde’s writing and rasp keep the trip engaging, usually.
- Lorde’s prioritization of private pleasure over the duties of pop stardom helps explain the parts of Solar Power that don’t wow: a clutch of ballads written with such memoirist precision, and such disinterest in big catharsis, that they may exist more for her sake than the listener’s. Yet even the duller fare makes a point.
[The Cut: what makes Solar Power so lovable is that it’s deeply uncool]
Fans had built an idea of what they wanted from Lorde — essentially, a repeat of her last album — that was impossible to reach, so she just didn’t. Good for her! @marianne_eloise reviews https://t.co/7FMA0RqL6j— The Cut (@TheCut) August 19, 2021
Favourable!: Ultimately, what makes Solar Power so lovable is that it’s deeply uncool. Anyone who was waiting four years for Melodrama 2.0 might be disappointed — Solar Power is Ella’s album! It doesn’t belong to you! But if you’re willing, you can follow Lorde and let go of your worldly desires and expectations, slip off your clothes, and sink into the ocean or the forest, letting Solar Power lead you into a future less dictated by phones and schedules.
[Entertainment Weekly: there’s a subdued quality to Solar Power that feels a lot like caution]
B grade: Maybe the singer, whipsawed by nearly a decade in the public eye and never quite convinced that the trade-offs justify the losses, is ready to cede some of her spotlight to the next wave. There's a subdued quality to Solar Power that feels a lot like caution, or just self-protection — a deliberate retreat from the raw, unfiltered verve of her earlier output into the safer remove of a wry bystander more at ease with cool observation than confessional bloodletting.
[Independent: Lorde just wafts over her pretty, pastichey soundscape without really connecting]
Lorde’s Solar Power is disappointing, detached and sun-bleached of melody – review https://t.co/nvJp33E5oU— Independent Arts (@IndyArts) August 19, 2021
2/5 stars: Alas, I’ve had this collection of heat haze hippy noodlings on repeat for a couple of days now, and I’m still waiting for the promised sonic high. In fact, I’m still waiting for more than a couple of discernible songs.
[The Skinny: the lack of structure to Solar Power’s songs is startling]
3/5 stars: A cursory listen is enough to confirm that in a musical sense – it’s soft, woozy, melodically loose. Further investigation reveals that this approach seems to have spread to every aspect of Lorde's songwriting. Where Melodrama was razor-sharp in the universally relatable picture it painted of late adolescence, Solar Power drifts to a place altogether more impressionistic.
[Slant: the results are as immersive as an ayahuasca ceremony]
On SOLAR POWER, Lorde presents herself as a pop star in exile, one who’s rejected fame and all of its material trappings. Read our review. https://t.co/KqupFFMIMV— Slant (@Slant_Magazine) August 19, 2021
3.5/5 stars: On the whole, the 12 songs here are quieter, more meditative, and more grown-up than Lorde’s past efforts. But while Solar Power doesn’t traffic in the booming emotional catharsis of Melodrama, it doesn’t succumb to navel-gazing solipsism either. The mesmerizing opening track, “The Path,” makes for an exhilarating thesis statement: “If you’re looking for a savior, well, that’s not me.”
[SPIN: It’s a record for sleepy vacation days and late-summer pool hangs where everyone’s dressed like an extra from Clueless]
Mixed, leaning unfavourable: There’s just very little magic here. The album lilts and meanders across 12 tracks, wholly avoiding the incendiary electronic percussion of past releases — a growing trend for the album’s producer Jack Antonoff, whose most recent works with Lana Del Rey, St. Vincent and Clairo (who sings backgrounds on several songs, as does Phoebe Bridgers) are similarly subdued and analog.
[Stereogum: Solar Power isn’t necessarily a bad hang if you approach it as background music]
Mixed: I want Solar Power to be a little messier. It would have made for a more interesting album. Lorde has always seemed so perceptive, but Solar Power‘s message and overall sound are muddy without that deeper engagement. It arrives with a resounding shrug. I guess that’s the pitfall of making an album that is so even-keeled.
Solar Power releases tomorrow and currently sits at 67 (ranked as "favourable") on Metacritic.

Nikki Glaser-hosted 'FBoy Island' earns a second season https://t.co/QMPLdd6xSE— Go! Magazine (@GoSTL) August 19, 2021
-HBOMax dating reality series "Fboy Island" wherein 3 women are put on an island to find love but little do they know that half of the men are glorified fuck boys who are just in it for the money and half good guys who are wanting to find love themselves has gained a 2nd season. Should a nice guy be chosen in the finale, the couple get to split 100k - 2 ways to start their new life together, should a fboy be chosen in the finale, he gets 100k all to himself or split it with his partner if he's reformed.
-The show wrapped up the first season last week where it changed the rules of the game. The Fboys were told from the start if they made it to the end and were chosen by one of the girls they'd win 100k. Well a Fboy made it to the end and "won" 100k only for the show to say "you don't deserve 100k so the money actually will be donated to charity"
I don't care, I'm excited. Here for Angie, Gemma and Salma, IDGAF.
This weekend and next represent the calm before the fall film release storm... provided that release dates hold with the recent increases in COVID cases, of course. So while the quantity and quality of releases may struggle a bit over the next couple of weeks, know that there will likely be plenty more new films come September.
The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia/Sony and Disney. Note that some of the movies listed are in their first week or two of limited release in the USA, so it may take them a few more weeks (or months) to show up in your local arthouse theater or on VOD. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have just opened near you: August 13th, August 6th, and July 30th.

Hong Kong has some of the toughest Covid-19 quarantine rules on the planet, capturing everyone from journalists to Olympic athletes.— CNN (@CNN) August 19, 2021
Not Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman, however. https://t.co/GgKuIYLYQ7
Hong Kong has some of the toughest Covid-19 quarantine rules on the planet.
They confirmed that the Oscar winner was granted a special exemption from the quarantine rules.
Kidman was in the city to film a series for Amazon.
The move was "conducive to maintaining the necessary operation and development of Hong Kong's economy."
The star arrived in the city on a private jet from Sydney. All arrivals from countries deemed "medium" or "high" risk need to quarantine in a hotel for 14 or 21 days at their own expense. Australia, which is witnessing a rise in Covid-19 infections, is now in the "medium risk" category.
Certain categories of people, including aircraft crew, are sometimes exempted from these rules.
Hong Kong also gave some top executives a pass in an attempt to protect business.
Shaun King has a new project to add to his resume. He is launching a new collection of clothing called "A Real One" and it will be available only through his Instagram, which is currently set to private. He has not released any photos, even though it is supposed to be released next month.
He also begged his followers for money to pay for his expensive beachfront New Jersey home as well as 24/7 security for himself. He claimed he needs the money to list his home for sale and move, even though the property has not been listed formally.
Actress Sharon Stone defended Shaun and offered her guesthouse to him temporarily.
Last time we heard from Shaun, Tamir Rice's mother was publicly criticizing him for allegedly fundraising in Tamir's name and pocketing the money.
