Echt eine starke Leadsingle die Sia hier bringt!
Erinnert mich stellenweise irgendwie spontan an Rihanna, jedoch könnte diese niemals die hohen Noten erreichen die Sia hier gibt!
Toll, wirklich sehr stark! Freue mich schon auf das Album!
Welcome back Sia!
5*+

edit: hätte schon lang die Höchstnote erhalten sollen! Unglaublich starker POP-Track! 6*

I wasn't keen on this initially but with familiarity it has grown on me. Love the post-chorus and that's my favourite part but the verses and pre-chorus are good too. I thought the chorus was a total chore to listen to at first but I enjoy most of it now. Production is reasonably good as well. Her enunciation doesn't bother me like it does for others. Great to see her get a huge hit out of it!

Quite nice. Very quirky, especially with the vocal gymnastics. Could've done without the autotune though.

I'm quite unsure on this one. I feel like I want to like it more than I actually do. 3.5
*****
The opening verse is really difficult to listen to but the rest of it, particularly the chorus, is really good.

Has grown on me. This is a pretty emotional effort.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand 3/4 of the song. The parts that I do understand are not very good. The music is too basic. Poor overall

Insufferable. 2* --> 1*

This sounds a bit more mainstream compared to her previous solo songs, but that's not really a problem for me. I just brought it up as it may mean she won't get much Triple J airplay for this song though, as it won't find their "sound".

The vocal performance makes up for any other faults, and is an enjoyable enough pop track.
***
I think I'll pass with this one; I really can't stand that chorus and this could definitely do without the auto-tune. 2.5
**
This reminds me of Rihanna and that's not a good thing. It does nothing for me and I don't like the production.
******
Amazing. I have always been a fan of Sia and this song just increases my love for her. She is such a great artist, this song is so clever and her lyrics are very sophisticated. Also an amazing music video that has just the right amount of quirk. I love how well it has done here and hopefully it does as well worldwide.

This is really good. I absolutely love the second verse, the beat and the feel is really cool, and the chorus is great too. My favourite solo track from Sia and will continue to grow I imagine.

This is a difficult one to rate. I didn't really like it but I've found the chorus can get stuck in my head. I don't think we really need yet another drinking song, but there's a message here somewhere. 4.3*

OMG HER VOICE IS SO WEIRD I DUNNO WOT SHE SAYING

Doesn't bother me, and that chorus melody is a stunner.

Must say when you DO hear what she's singing the power of this song does jump up quite a lot

There are several reasons I've had to dislike this from the beginning. The most obvious one is the chorus production. I can describe it exactly like "Summer" type songs in that it's stale, boring and basic. It's most certainly not how to make an interesting song (in 2014 at least, but it's not particularly dated). I don't care if my most obvious comparison "Diamonds" was Rihanna stealing Sia's style or anything, she still did it first. The chorus production is also a style I happen to strongly dislike; see choruses of other songs like "Beating Heart" and Cher Lloyd's "Sirens" (first two to come to mind) for the same thing, except that those two do it a lot more inoffensively. I haven't yet worked out why I dislike the style so much and if there's anything objective to it. There's also that buzzing noise in the background which is just embarrassing being present, and her vocals could be mixed better. And then on the topic of her vocals, her singing on the chorus just isn't pleasant, and clashes with the production, and her enunciation is way too much, well beyond the realm of quirky in a fun/endearing way if that's what she wanted. I said upon first hearing it that it's got to be self-parody but as far as I'm aware it's not, so just, what's the point? I've gotten used to it, but I haven't become fond of it.

The structure is what annoys me the most. I'm not here to complain about unconventional structure, but bad structure. Like, there's a reason songs don't normally do this. Let me explain: "Chandelier" goes verse -> pre-chorus -> chorus -> post-chorus then repeats the whole thing over, with a slight outro of the post-chorus with less instrumentation. It's kind of like GAB music structure actually, without the post-chorus existence. Anyway the problem is the post-chorus being used the first time. It should be left until the second refrain to give something to progress towards, to have a more interesting ending, to not have used up all its core elements by the halfway mark, to not have a chorus/post-chorus lasting 0:33-1:39 with pretty much the same old production through that whole duration. Take "Ghost" as an example of great structure in a pop song: it has a low sung and high sung chorus, changes around the usage and production on them many times, only uses the pre-chorus the first time (even though it's really strong), has a bridge, etc. You most certainly don't go long hearing the same things, it's the opposite of predictable. It's like it actually tries, actually makes you want to listen. And it's obvious how little "Chandelier" tries if you were to take out the first post-chorus which is nowhere as good a solution as it once seemed; the 2nd verse is literally 10 seconds long (longer than "Drink To That All Night" at least!) and before you know it you're back in the chorus you were at 20 seconds ago. Was there no time to write more content so they just elected to repeat what they had? Probably, like there was no time to make the production better or cleaner or do anything about her vocals. But it's spent 3 months in the top 10 and is probably going #1, and I wouldn't be surprised if it blows up in the US in about 2 years, so you know who's getting the last laugh. Well hopefully not Sony, I'm sure they'd be happy to know how little effort or quality is necessary if you have some appeal in there. Which I'm sure sounds ironic to everyone else with the DISBELIEF that "Que Sera" is better than this which is 100% false xx

I will say that "Chandelier"'s melody is fairly good (albeit would be better in smaller doses of course), I have no problem with the lyrics, and it's catchy enough that I typed out all this because I couldn't sleep and it was stuck in my head again.
******
She's back! (singing that is, she's been writing hit singles) And in a BIG way. Should of been #1 to seal the comeback for her for at least 1 week, Geromino is brilliant but Que Sera also kept this off #1 when that song in my opinion was far inferior to this.

The video is incredible!

Amazing.

What a talent. Glad she kept this gem for herself and not given to an over rated Rihanna or Beyoncé.

Average and isn't anything even slightly interesting.

Love the chorus, her voice in the verses is really weird and sounds weird alongside the chorus.

Don't like it.

I may as well get this out of the way; this is probably my biggest disappointment of 2014. Yes, it's lovely to see Sia smashing worldwide without 'feat. ' in front of her name, but for someone with such a strong and fascinating catalogue of songs that aren't exactly unfriendly, why did it have to be this one??

Not that the song is bad mind you, I like the mental breakdown that the lyrics portray, but I'm not really fond of the way it sounds. For one, Sia's trademark vocal free-flow is almost entirely absent here, save for the post-chorus.

And more importantly, there's some major peaking that goes on in that chorus, and the scratches are very audible and downright distracting. It makes this song join the super exclusive list of songs that sound better NOT with headphones, as it's so much better when you can't notice that.

I mean, I like it, but for what will probably go down as Sia's most recognised track, it should be a lot better than that. And I also imagine that if anyone actually cared about the Australian charts, this would be a sort of #1 spot robbery embarrassment on par with all the awful things Robson & Jerome did. Now if you don't mind me, I'd like to put on my copy of "Colour The Small One" and pretend this never happened. 3.7
