CRITIC REVIEWS

90
PopMatters

This is a seriously heavy and seriously excellent album.

90
No Ripcord

In moving firmly away from the happier pop tone of her debut Lykke Li has nonetheless made a better record.

85
Beats Per Minute

The album serves as a bit of a soundtrack for anyone who’s managed to retain a romantic outlook past the age where such a thing is likely realistic, and the bitter struggle of rediscovery that follows.

83
Pitchfork

Li proves a rich and compelling character in her songs, which are dark but also complex, contradictory, and, thank goodness, still rough around the edges.

80
Tiny Mix Tapes

Rhymes is smarter and more mature than 2008's Youth Novels in nearly every conceivable way.

80
musicOMH

At other times, the album works magnificently; more so than anything on her breakthrough debut.

80
Consequence of Sound

Li’s explosion of confidence and fearless experimentation add together to create an album that is sensual and immense, as substantial as it is enjoyable.

More confident and clearly angrier, despite her wounds, she sacrificed most of her innocence in order to grab what's hers.
And she did very well!
