NME
Whether she's belting out sex-positive pop songs, R&B or exploring slow-burning country twang, the LA-based singer is always defiantly herself.

Beats Per Minute

Life Support is a victorious debut from a singer whose determination and passion has allowed her to overcome any naysayers and detractors.

Spectrum Culture

Life Support feels like the proper beginning of a journey in pop actualization.

Pitchfork

Rooted in authenticity but still layered in artifice, the rising pop singer’s debut is ambitious yet shallow, seemingly intent on proving its own seriousness.

What a great surprise! As someone who has never been a fan of Madison’s work up until this point, I have to say that this album was a slap on the face.

Starting with the problems of this album: it is so ambitious that it loses its focus even in its brightest moments. I felt that the production tried to be ... read more

I appreciate that "Life Support", at least at some moments, tries not to go the easiest way. Of course, the majority of the songs here are generic and typically pop-ish, but the nuances like some strings or choir, or just generally the abundance of musical and sonic choices across the whole album make it somewhat more enjoyable and interesting. Madison's voice can be really good and she definitely has some great moments on the record, but when ... read more
