CRITIC REVIEWS

91
A.V. Club

It’s the self-possession of lyrics like these, and Solange’s newfound love for sincere, catchy hooks, that make True the best work of her young career and one of most irresistible pop records of 2012.

80
NME

It showcases Solange’s experimentation at its best, but is only a prelude to a full album in 2013.

79
Paste

In the past, Solange dabbled with genres and moods like finger-paints; with True, she’s made some bold, inventive brushstrokes.

78
Pitchfork

True ... delivers on the fresh promise of "Losing You" and marks the sound of a singer hitting a graceful stride, in her own time and on her own terms.

60
Consequence of Sound

Solange delivers an EP stocked with promising parts slightly dashed by a burgeoning identity crisis.

You can definitely see the indie music scene influence in this album. I think she made great choices. It is a cohesive compilation of songs, and appreciated her sound.
