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.

60
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.

Billboard

Aside from an understandable naivete, Trainor's weaknesses are her stylistic cherry-picking and her compulsion to appear adorably relatable and socially correct all at once.

Slant Magazine

Trainor is no Amy Winehouse, lacking both that singer's raw emotive talent and Back to Black's ability to infuse her period sound with a distinctly 21st-century sonic and lyrical sophistication. This blue-eyed soul is ultimately just pale.

Trainor recycles the themes from every forgettable Billboard alumnus from the past decade, with a bit more color here and there, but not enough to distinguish herself from the pack.

It grew on me a bit but not enough to pursue playing the album. Then she released second single Lips Are Movin' and I loved that song. Initially I wasn't fond of this album but eventually I came around and now I find this to be a very fun album. I'm excited to see what she does with her sophomore ... read more

With her full-length album debut, Trainor's subtle and poignant masterpiece will go down as a feminist classic. The album satirizes the many woes of the modern-day women, confronting the issues with a deep and impervious sword. A true pièce de résistance.
