I disagree about Cry. I think it is one of her best and I love its place as the album opener.
Camouflage is bland but it is essencial on the album to tell the story she wanted to tell. Without it I think the whole meaning would be a bit lost.
Yes I like cry a lot too. You see, I judge each song individually on how I like it, based on the melody, the vocals, the lyrics, the whole thing. Im not a mindless drone that categorizes songs as... AC GOOD! RAP BAD! which apparently some people think I do.
For example I happen to find Migrate to be a terrible song whereas I quite enjoy Money. And wow they both have rappers on them! What a concept!
Similarly I think When I Saw You is quite bland and boring meanwhile Forever is one of my favorites. And WOW they're both on the same album produced by the same person! This is really some new groundbreaking way of analyzing music I guess.
