The Young Folks

Better Mistakes is an anthemic masterclass ... It’s an expansive album driven by and anchored in the Albanian-American singer’s excellent voice and song-writing nous.

Entertainment Weekly

If there's a through-line on Mistakes, it's a sort of dear-diary fatalism invariably sweetened by pop sheen; crippling anxiety and self-sabotage, but make it slappy.

Sinceramente esperava muito mais do novo álbum de bebe rexha, quando ela lançou "Sacrifice" me deixou muito animado pra esse disco, mas infelizmente grande parte do disco é apenas músicas pop sem graça e genéricas.
