CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit
It stands apart from their previous albums in its boldness and precision.

AllMusic

The aptly titled LM5 feels like the apotheosis of this journey, and once again presents the group as an empowered pop force to be reckoned with.

The Independent

Ultimately, despite a few high points, LM5 is so scattershot, both thematically and musically, that it’s hard to find much to grab onto. As they’re so keen to point out, Little Mix can, and do, write their own material – but with as many as 13 songwriters on any given song here, their own identity becomes lost in the mire.

The Guardian

Padded it may be, but the strike rate is high enough for LM5 to prolong Little Mix’s career even further, at least in Britain. What Americans will make of it is anyone’s guess. If they see imitation as the sincerest form of flattery, then they should be tickled pink.

NME
‘LM5’ is the culmination of the band’s growth over the past seven year. Yes it may sometimes musically miss the mark; but with its strong and relevant message it’s something of a milestone for the band.

The Observer

Little Mix albums have always struggled to find their own identity, and LM5 still owes too much to Beyoncé’s flirtation with hip-hop and top-40 trend chasing.

All songs sound the same. It seems that they are desperate to succeed in the US. The album is a complete catastrophe taking into consideration the entire career of the girls.

Little Mix is good at making fun albums and LM5 is still generally a fun album but there was a half assed attempt at going deeper with a feminist message and it definitely wasn't worth it. The girls sound bored on a lot of the more serious tracks with really generic writing. The really fun tracks don't feel fully realized either especially Joan of Arc and Wasabi because of bad lyrics or disjointed parts.

Will listen more so my score might change for the worse or better

THIS ALBUM IS A BOP It's so fun and entertaining, their voices sound better and better together with every next album. I honestly think this is their best era yet and I'm incredibly happy they parted ways with their label. I'm excited for every performance and video that's gonna follow the release of this album.

faves; woman like me, think about us, joan of arc, more than words

Como em seus trabalhos anteriores, a ordem das faixas é um problema. As músicas são muito boas, mas a ordem não as valoriza. O álbum começa muito bem, mas em vez de dar uma mudada de clima e desascelerar ele continua agitado, intercalando entre uma música mais animada e uma mais leve. Isso faz o álbum ficar um pouco cansativo e parecer mais longo do que realmente é. Fora isso, elas estão fazendo o que não se vê ... read more
