****** Music (especially pop music) is so thoroughly driven by the small decisions made to fill up the bigger picture. While the bigger concept is important, it's also worthwhile to put more into the song so there's repeat value to dig into. I always mention this about this song because this song for me is defined by all of its small decisions: the occasional bell sounds before the title drops, the way the drums that punctuate each bar of the verses sound so huge, and just the fact that the song is called "Tension" and the hook breaks it so thusly. And yet it's crafted so simply that I can't imagine anyone getting overwhelmed by it. It's just an absolute gem of a song that more people need to hear.
