It's a sharp, raw and euphoric record. A stunning and outstanding debut.

Interesting ideas lead to interesting execution. Empress Of's "Me" has the hooks and the sound, somewhere, but most of it takes no time or too much time to really click.

The faults is due to its own only identity. Interesting ideas lead to interesting execution and most of it is a short rush and nothing more.

Hay cosas que el tiempo lo mejora, de eso no hay dudas, y hoy puedo decir que "Me", el debut comercial de Lorely Rodriguez, mejor conocida como Empress Of, es uno de los trabajos con el sello marcado de "pop", más sobresalientes de toda la década.

La composición de armonías, el individualismo y la tonada synth que emerge de una ola bailable, son perfectos para catalogar a este material como un "electropop-punzante", y el contenido lo ... read more

Aside from Rodriguez' traditional pop vocals, this record shows a much more adventurous artist, focusing her efforts on original, brand new soundscapes (that may be sometimes weird and intriguing for a pop record) and strong lyrical content, as the singer/songwriter forges a new identity for herself, all inside her own personal universe. Not just on the title this album is about herself, her wishes, fantasies and artistic detours, which are depicted beautifully on every otherwordly track on the ... read more

This is how you can be both accessible, modern and still interesting.

Esse álbum me deixou extremamente confuso (???). Os instrumentais bem clássicos, bem trabalhados e inspirados num som electropop/house dão um peso absurdo às letras super pessoais que falam de relacionamentos. Ou seja, é um álbum ótimo...mas eu não gostei?? Não sei explicar, mas fora Water Water, eh ouvia as faixas, admirava a produção super polida e bem feita mas não me sentia preso a elas. Enfim, pode ser um ... read more

"Me" is a brilliant, personal, intense, contagious and introspective debut album.

Electropop was perhaps even more overexposed in 2015 than it is now, and yet on “Me,” Empress Of (née Lorely Rodriguez) finds a way to stand out from this crowded field. “Me” is simultaneously pop-friendly and adventurous. Though the album is synth-heavy, it’s far from repetitive; depending on the context, the synths can contribute to a lilting pop melody, or they can downright rip, as they do on standout “Kitty Kat.” Rodriguez’s voice is ... read more

This and Ten Love Songs are the best pop albums of the decade.

'Me' is an experimental record, but it is also very accessible and listener friendly. The album shifts effortless between beautiful electro-pop soundscapes, and heavy beat driven tracks. These changes throughout make the album feel fresh and interesting from start to finish.

Favorite moments: Water Water, How Do You Do It, Kitty Kat.

Lorely Rodriguez's debut, apart from being pop oriented, it's also adventurous and promising.
She must have a little chat with Bjork!
