We have already seen Ladyhawke’s penchant for writing the perfect pop song and hitting the highs, but now we know a lot more about the voice behind that craft. Because of that, Time Flies is her best album yet.

The Line of Best Fit

Despite its nostalgia-centric title, Time Flies is very much grounded in the present in respect to Brown’s approach to catharsis in her personal life, juxtaposed with escapism in a celebration of surviving adversity – a symbolic, innocuously upbeat chapter in Ladyhawke’s discography.


While Brown's songwriting isn't always as sharply honed as it's been in the past, Time Flies is a fine example of just how much fun, and how therapeutic, well-crafted pop can be.

The Arts Desk
It all sounds crisp and lush – there’s been an awful lot of knob-twiddling in the studio. But that’s her shtick: unafraid to do the unfashionable, Pip Brown sometimes seems like a woman out of time.

From Guilty Love on, it's just banger after banger. The first few songs are nostalgic fluff, but I don't HATE IT either.
conheço apenas algumas músicas dessa mulher então decidi ouvir este álbum pra saber se vale a pena ouvir mais desta mulher. o começo é ok, mas mto safe eu diria, bem fraco até. ele é bem apelativo pro estilo retrô anos 80, mas mesmo assim ele é mto simples.

não que este seja ruim, mas não achei o mais criativo com certeza. realmente pra mim falta algo. algo que me faça gostar mais deste álbum. algo ... read more
