My original review said I didn't like this, I don't remember ever not liking this but hey. This is good. Kinda chugs along and gets stuck in your head. I still would have liked it to have a stronger hook, but the production is fantastic and she is very talented. One of my faves of 2015.

So typical that the Take40 hosts went totally orgy over this, yuck. Only took 1 full listen to get annoyed by this, I really don't like her voice, ugh.
****
It's kind of hard to listen to this properly just because it samples "Ike's Rap II", which to me is very familiar as the backdrop to "Glory Box". But it's still an interesting hit that really stands out with its moody backing which really fits the song's angle of contemplating why you're at a party that you're clearly not enjoying. It's something that's easy to relate to, not just in a literal sense. Rather confrontiing too, Alessia barely leaves an empty syllable once she gets going.

Also she rhymes 'hear' with 'here'.
****
I thought this samples Glory Box. It's very good and could grow on me even more.
****
OK
****
Quite good.

I still rather enjoy this, cool lyrics and interesting music. 4.25

I feel I should like this, as I can sympathize and relate to the story that she is telling. But I don't. I really, really dislike this.

For the most part, despite some lyrics suggesting otherwise, there is the overbearing sense of condescension that I'm feeling from this and I despise it. Other than the vocal delivery, the lines "And we'll discuss our big dreams/ How we plan to take over the planet" reeks of smug superiority over the people she is talking about and overbears a lot of the song. Though some might be, I'd say most people at parties are not simply defined by partying alone, and really do have a lot happening outside of that. Sure, they may be annoying in that moment and you wouldn't want to be around them, but there is a tendency to oversimplify a person's personality as what they are in that moment, when that truly isn't all they are.

I'm also barely older than Cara, and even now I feel like I've progressed past that age of judging how "cool kids" party, so there really isn't any appeal here for me.

Also, according to Genius.com, Cara says of how she has been to multiple parties with her friends, and how she realised that she had hated "every party that she had ever gone to". I think there comes a point where you probably should have taken upon yourself to stop going to these parties, or just find new friends who have similar interests to those that you mention in the song. I don't know, I'm just struggling to find any sympathy for a person who willingly does something, knows they are going to hate it, and then just stands in the corner complaining about it.

Furthermore, this isn't helped as it has this ugly-sounding music which is next to unlistenable.

A lucky 2*, and one of my worst songs of 2015.
*****
Eine tolle Nummer die verdient in den USA zu einem Hit wurde!! 5*
*****
Not what I was expecting from someone who became famous through YouTube but damn, this is good!

I also thought it sampled Portishead at first, not Isaac Hayes :S

Me too, also she looks (and sounds) like a fat gerbil.
