CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

As much as an album can be, it's pretty damn close to being flawless; not only matching the quality of The Reminder but actually bettering it.

Beats Per Minute

There are no real weak spots, just slow spots, and lots of high points that will have you skipping back to listen again.

Consequence of Sound

The highs are so high that they almost cast aside the slower moments.

Metals is not a static creation that reveals all its cards at once. It is a work that will continue to surprise and delight over time.

All is so magnificent, her voice, the arrangement, all put in the right place, that without one of theses details could not work so well like work here. Have the bests moments in the ballads like the perfect and soft Caught A Long Wild, or in the minimalist Anti-Pioneer. A big step, a big voice, a big woman, a big album.

Second half of the album really drags on for me but "How Come You Never Go There is a big highlight" on this. Doesn't suffer from the emptiness this has at times

Wow. This is one of my favs. The raw organic production mixed with some sweeping hooks. There isn’t a bad song on the album. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s great.
