On Two Suns, probably her most acclaimed work to date, Khan shows her versatility and enigmatic self-persona with some beautiful and very well produced tracks throughout the album, but still, a divisive lack of consistency that prevails at times. The sounds on this record are, for the most part, pretty fantastic, with some of her best instrumentals yet, but some tracks, mostly on the second half sound much less intriguing, with more traditional balladry and piano-led slow burners that in the end don't sound as special as her synthpop moments on the first part of the record. Sleep Alone and Pearl's Dream are the possible highlights, while The Big Sleep (a surprising duet with Scott Walker) explicits her potential for subtler tracks with more elegance than the previous ballads on the record. Either way, the singer-songwriter shows her potential and creative drive throughout the tracklisting, in most of these enigmatic compositions in a most interesting and diverse effort than on her debut, but still not quite as good as she can get.
