CRITIC REVIEWS

60
The Independent

For the most part, the mood here is pensive, the ballads plentiful and the pace glacial, with little evidence of the wild abandon that the singer supposedly longs for.

NME

Although there are dalliances here with buoyant, radio-friendly material, album three sees the star largely stick to their tried-and-tested break-up songs.

The Guardian

Smith attempts to mix despair with euphoria on an album that delivers plenty of gloom but not much glitter.

Monotonous pop ballads spoil everything that is on Love Goes, and even the second part of the album, which has several highlights, does not save the day.

Another case of releasing all of your good songs as singles, there’s nothing on the album that tops the likes of How do you sleep. On the other hand, it doesnt overstay it’s welcome. Very happy for them and I hope they continue on the style that they’ve developed so far.

This is a pretty decent pop album, but the songs in it are so incompatible with each other in mood and emotion. Like "we were a little sad, but now we will dance, and then we will be sad again". Perhaps it would be better to split these 17 tracks into two EPs, or at least arrange the songs differently on the tracklist. Sam's voice is mesmerizing as always.
