CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

It refines the seemingly instinctive and contemporary hybrid sound of 2015's The Switch with more mature pop informed by traditional singer/songwriters, classic R&B into the post-disco era, the high-tech end of mid-'80s Top 40 radio, and even a little gospel.

Exclaim!

King's whisper smooth vocals are welcoming and ensure the 12-track project holds together. Scenery comes ever-so-close to its intended level of sublime, yet plays things on the safe side: pleasant, powerful, precise.

Very uninspiring

So many precious moments through the album. Very calming and thrilling in "Running", vibrating and joyful in "2nd Guess". It's a very soulful work. Lifting up the mood in general, Emily creates a beautiful mix of emotions here. It would be unnecessary go into more details, so just enjoy it.

A really lovely album. Very warm and generally romantic. Really like the mix of soul and pop on this.

Um r&b meio soul gostoso de se ouvir mas deixou a desejar.

Pretty decent album, but almost too clean and polished that there's some sort of excitement or actual emotion here missing. Still a pretty pop album.
