On the whole, this new Georgia album is simple, groovy, catchy, and danceable. Very danceable. Every song feels like the kind of song I would want to blast in my room with the lights off and just vibe.

Heavily 80s synth pop inspired, but progressive in nature, Seeking Thrills is an honorable follow up to her previous efforts, but much like her past albums, I find it hard to fully engage with the songs beyond a surface level danceability.

In the moment it's fun and catchy, but the overall ... read more

"Seeking Thrills" is a perfectly fine synthpop album with some decent writing and a few great, even slightly experimental, cuts. Unfortunately, the vocals don't shine very brightly and the generic moments fall flat on their face.

Fav Tracks: Started Out, Ultimate Sailor, Honey Dripping Sky, Ray Guns, Till I Own It, Never Let You Go

Least Fav Tracks: Mellow, 24 Hours

This was by no means an offensively bad album, and I did most certainly pull some enjoyable elements from it. There were some really good grooves at times, and it gave that "fun" vibe which is usually what I want to get from a dance / electropop album. However, the vocals felt very flat and uninteresting for most of the album, and the album does start to feel very tired and repetitive after about the halfway mark. This wasn't to say it became a bad experience, it just wasn't one I ... read more

I can see the influences that this album comes from, names like Robyn, M.I.A. and others are the inspiration behind this I'm sure. Well, I liked it quite a lot, seems like the type of music that could be playing in any "edgy party scene" in indie movies haha

Since this was getting fairly positive reviews i decided to peep this record. I saw her genre tags and immediately was interested because i love electro/synth pop. Coming out of this record i feel pretty satisfied! There are some cuts on here that re just fun, vibrant and beautiful. Some tracks on this record do feel half baked. Towards the middle of the album i start losing interest but i really do like Georgias sound. I think shes a good artist and i definitely want to check out her other ... read more

if you wanna listen to a pop album that aint trynna be a copycat of all other pop mainstream/generic albums (like rare by selena that also came out jan 10) then this is the right album for ya. this aint perfect but it's much better than most of the pop shit that plays on the radio nowadays.

If you like the same song with the same obnoxious vocals over and over again, then you’re gonna love this. There’s nothing special about this album.

Inside of a more older than contemporary such a good electropop, Georgia brings to me the first good album of the decade. Balanced, good production, and some tracks with contemporary sounds for everyone. Sure bet for her carrer, great album to us

I could see Georgia's live show last year in Guadalajara, opening Franz Ferdinand and Interpol, I honestly enjoyed it without knowing in the least any of his singles, I decided to wait for his full album to come out without listening to any of his songs in a studio version and I am getting a pleasant surprise, very solid and original, I love his way of singing.

Wow! Fucking great. Sounds amazing and I hope it gets all the spotlight this work deserves. There one or two songs I didn't appreciate, but as a whole is a really strong album.

Some great pop tracks and some good attempts to keep the album fresh by introducing a varying use of beat and voice. However too much of a lull in the middle stops it from scoring higher.

Seeking Thrills is a nice and catchy album that provides and leaves you in a good vibe, however let's be honest I think the most important thing here is the first 3 songs, which are taken from an "EP" released on November 1st 2018.

Also, for the rest of the album you will find 2 singles released before "Mellow" and "Feel It", which leaves us with only 7 unreleased tracks. However, apart from the symmetrical "24 hours" nothing is better and as good as ... read more

There's nothing here that hasn't been done before, and better. There's only so much water that can be drawn from the 80's synthpop well, and I think Carly Rae Jepsen found the bottom years ago.

Grade: F

Seeking Thrills é uma mistura de Robyn com Chvrches tanto na produção quanto vocais e até msm composição porém de uma forma que soa original e não uma "nova X artista que citei". Álbum incrível e muito gostoso de ouvir.

Fave Tracks: Started Out, Never Let You Go, 24 Hours, Mellow, Ray Guns, The Thrill

this album feels sooooo dragged out. i felt like i'd been listening to this for five hours and had only been up to track 8. there were some decent tracks though and production was really nice. just a bit boring. turns into background music after a while.

I had never heard of Georgia before listening to this, but I saw this album was getting good reviews and decided to give it a show. I’m pretty glad I did.

This album is not perfect and has many flaws, but I find it to be a pretty enjoyable listen (even with the lesser songs). The second half is much weaker than the first, and some of the songs are a little bland and boring, but there is a lot I do really like about this album.

The production is the classic synth pop kind of sound, but ... read more

And many moments I remembered Robyn, by the similarity in voice, and both investing in this pop/disco, Georgia delivers a wonderful job, is dancing, has amazing lyrics and instrumentals, started the year and the decade with golden key.

A really fun pop album with noble efforts to distinguish it from others, but a few songs still fall flat

I wish i could hear what others are hearing. I did not enjoy this record for the most part. Production was okay at times and i REALLY like the track “mellow”, but the whole record is just so boring. The vocals sound phoned in and uninterested, the lyrics are pretty rudimentary. Every song has the same idea pretty much. IDK. I guess it’s decent background music.

Georgia’s most recent studio album improves her synth pop/Electropop appeal on almost all fronts. “Seeking Thrills” starts off at a solid sprint, only stumbling momentarily across the LP in what represents her most solid, focused work to date.

FAVE TRACKS: Started Out, About Work the Dancefloor, Never Let You Go, Till I Own It, Feel It, Ultimate Sailor, Ray Guns, Honey Dripping Sky

LEAST FAVE TRACKS: 24 Hours, Mellow, I Can’t Wait

A lovely dance pop album that's definitely for the night clubs / night parties. It just has that groovy and exotic feel like as if you're dancing effortlessly on the dancefloor or like that beginning of a movie where you're entering through the hallways into a nightclub. It's also really cohesive and surprisingly accessible yet innovative.

Best tracks: About Work The Dance Floor, Till I Own It, Ultimate Sailor, The Thrill, Never Let You Go, Honey Dripping Sky

If the whole album was as great as Started Out this album would kick so much ass

I can't hear the magic the critics keep talking about. The album started out quite well, and then I ran into a few tracks that shouldn't be on this record at all. Mellow is one of the worst tracks I've heard in 2020. Overall it's a good project that just should've been a bit lighter.

I am new to Georgia and just like a lot of albums I plan on listening to this year, I listened to this one a whim during a slow music week early in 2020. From what I could gather this album was inspired by club life and losing yourself within the music. If that was the plan then I could 100% see it. This is the type of album I imagine playing at 2 AM when I am way to drunk off of wine and just want to listen to some feel-good music. ‘Never Let You Go’ is such a fun song that is ... read more

London’s Georgia delivers a pop masterpiece that may possibly trace an outline for many more albums in the genre for the next decade.
Multi-instrumentalist Georgia really proves herself as one of the most talented figures in pop music today. Not only does she provide an excellent vocal performance, she has produced the entire album herself. This is a far more polished album than her self-titled debut, which I felt became more and more of a mess as it progressed. Whilst the production ... read more

Georgia presents an intriguing synthpop sound on Seeking Thrills but the record remains too surface level and one note to be anything more than the upper side of my "average" tier. I will keep an eye on Georgia going forward but Seeking Thrills falls just short of my "good" tier and I will most likely not be coming back to it very frequently.

As the cover shows, it's the dance album for alternative kids, combining elements of 80's synth pop with modern floor fillers to create sound that is genuinely unique and very listenable. The only thing that holds it back from being truly memorable is Georgia herself as the vocals and lyrics are the only two things that are lacking.
Favourite track: Feel It

Seeking Thrills é um projeto ambicioso. Ao mesmo tempo que mantém as características vibrantes do seu electropop, as contrapõe com momentos mais escuros, ora pulsantes e dançantes, ora lentos e contemplativos. O resultado que Georgia acaba trazendo é um álbum animado e cativante, com experimentações e camadas de produção que permitem uma evolução sonora a cada segundo tocado. No geral, é um projeto ... read more

Great Rocket League music! It's just a fun electropop record. Nothing to hate about the album, it flows super nicely throughout with its dancey grooves. Could def see myself revisiting this fairly often, considering how easy of a listen it is.

Endless head bopping and grooving to be had, yet a little interest is lost along the way. I had fun with this one while hoping for a lot more.

Like most reviews, especially us user reviewers, find it difficult to offer up opinions on a genre of music that doesn't appeal to the reviewer. That would be the case for me and the album "Seeking Thrills" by London based Georgia. To guide me through that particular bias, I have a list of 20 personal questions I ask myself about the album and artist and give each of those questions a score of 1-5. Adding those results gives me a final score that I personally feel is fair and maybe a ... read more

Seeking Thrills is an album about letting go, and just wanting to have fun, demonstrated by its abundance of catchy beats and upbeat instrumentals, making it exactly what it was meant to be; some good dance music. The lyrics are pretty straightforward; not poetic but far from terrible. The tracks range in style from fun dance music, to 80s style throwbacks, to early 2010s radio pop, to “this sounds exactly like MIA”. The track run is generally decent but some tracks are just ... read more

Great album from Georgia. "About Work the Dancefloor" is such an amazing track and I'm glad the rest of the album delivered as well. Georgia focuses on the joys of the night club life with really heartfelt and optimistic bangers perfect for the start of the year. It's a more consistent and cohesive album than her debut though there are tracks on this that feel too familiar to the works of M.I.A, Robyn and even Tegan and Sara.

There are some great songs in here, mainly the first two and the one featuring Shygirl, but my problem with this album is its length, this album could easily lose three of four tracks, this is quality synthpop music , with great lyrics and some really bold moments, but it does not work as an album more than it would work as a bunch of isolated singles. When all of these songs are put together the result is no other than a very generic and exhausting album, ultimately, this is a great listen if ... read more
