As much as an album can be, it's pretty damn close to being flawless; not only matching the quality of The Reminder but actually bettering it.

There are no real weak spots, just slow spots, and lots of high points that will have you skipping back to listen again.

The highs are so high that they almost cast aside the slower moments.

Metals is not a static creation that reveals all its cards at once. It is a work that will continue to surprise and delight over time.

It's a bit too even-keeled to incorporate the sense of pastiche that made her earlier two records so exciting.

The stylistic explorations on Metals prove that she’s not running out of any ideas, but the moments on the album that most clearly parallel her prior outings aren’t as strong as their predecessors.

All is so magnificent, her voice, the arrangement, all put in the right place, that without one of theses details could not work so well like work here. Have the bests moments in the ballads like the perfect and soft Caught A Long Wild, or in the minimalist Anti-Pioneer. A big step, a big voice, a big woman, a big album.
