The antecipation for the album was beyond since the moment of the announcement on the 2022 VMAS Awards, many theories were made about how the sound would be like, the aesthetic, the search for easter eggs dropped in the past, tracks were claimed as favorites without even hearing it, and even though at first some fans were not so pleased by the genre since they're hoping for a sound like in 'Folklore' and 'Evemore', the approval by the public and critics couldn´t be better.
