I suppose the September issue of many music magazines will be out early August. Would that mean Hippopotamus could get some early reviews or do album reviews usually appear after the release date? 🤔

Positive review, nice. It'll be interesting to see if the 4 tracks we've heard so far will be considered to be standouts? So curious about Missionary Position. 🤔

Just to clarify my point - I meant no leaks of reviews - everything being done officially and professionally

Great album review by Joseph Ragusta of Under the Radar. Comparison to David Bowie in terms of "chameleon-like" "genre bending" "approach to albums" really articulates the bewildering innovation of Sparks work for curious readers. It will more than resonate with Sparks fans. During 21x21, what struck me about Sparks fans was how many were devoted to Bowie and Sparks above all else. With Bowie now having sadly slipped away from this world, I wonder if it feels lonely at the top for Sparks? MiniPop
