CRITIC REVIEWS

70
AllMusic

Far from consigning her to one-hit wonder territory, the blend of strength of personality and music-biz savvy on Title shows that Meghan Trainor is clever enough to parlay a big hit into a real career.

Rolling Stone

While the 21-year-old singer rocks more sass and self-empowerment on her full-length major-label debut, she's also charmingly old-fashioned.

Of course I'll give myself the pleasure of missing the opportunity of just saying "Review" to fit the album title... "Title". Wouldn't it be funny? Not as long as I can't put "Rating" as my rating - and the album itself is already a huge joke.

Meghan Trainor was destined into being a "bar singer": You don't know her, but you already listened to her at least once, covering pop songs in folk versions while devouring a huge hamburger at the local ... read more
