CRITIC REVIEWS

Clocking in at 41 minutes, Speak Your Mind is a slick, well-produced offering that delivers on Anne-Marie’s potential without overstaying its welcome, the best British pop debut in a while.

70
AllMusic

As her first official salvo into the pop arena, Speak Your Mind hints at an enticing amount of potential for Anne-Marie and her engaging vocals.

60
NME

Beyond her lyrics ... ‘Speak Your Mind’ fails to leave much of an impression musically. At its best, the album is a selection of polished and inoffensive pop songs, but at its worst, it’s forgettable.

60
The Independent

The Essex-born pop singer is less polished than most pop fans will have come to expect, but the streetwise sass is what makes her stand out in a very crowded field, and her debut album Speak Your Mind is jam-packed with the stuff.

60
Clash

While not being particularly groundbreaking, ‘Speak Your Mind’ is a solid pop debut from Anne-Marie. The highlights on this project are the glimpses of musical experimentation, but unfortunately the album doesn’t have enough of these to really shine.

60
The Observer

It would all be so much anodyne chart mulch, but Anne-Marie has something of a plain-speaking everywoman image too.

40
The Guardian

Ultimately, this is music machine-tooled to climb the charts, and it’s working ... Yet it’s disappointing in another sense: the title promises a hit of authenticity, but Speak Your Mind supplies only affectation.

40
The Line of Best Fit

A debut album that sets the listener up for unabashed truth-telling, but lacks the substance to back up its bravado.

I almost forgot who she was. Speak Your Mind is probably the most forgettable album of the year. Cry is the only song that I could listen to without wanting to skip. Speak your Mind is so average, I can't explain how much.

45/10 y siento que estoy siendo muy amable. No se le niega a Anne Marie que tiene talento; no creo que sea del todo mediocre. Tiene un buen rango vocal. Pero, este álbum es sin duda lo peor que he escuchado hasta ahora. No seré de esos que ponen calificaciones de "20/10", porque algo positivo tiene a su favor, pero de verdad este álbum es tan mediocre, genérico, y repetitivo que es difícil verle puntos a favor. Los vídeos no siguen ninguna ... read more
