As your Admin I found it my duty to settle the great Lorde debate happening here at Blocland.
“Green Light” is not as good as ACDC’s “Black Ice.” “Black Ice” is a modern masterpiece and summation of Modern Rock while “Green Light” is a song Katy Perry would record after eating a lot of mexican food.
“Black Ice” has a confidence, a swagger and a riff that “Green Light” just does not possess. Where is the riffage Lorde?
ACDC has taken the sounds of all rock groups before and after them (similar to their contemporaries The Ramones) and melded them together to create the Pinnacle of Rock. Lorde’s “Green Light” is the pinnacle of Burrito Pop. It will not be remembered.
