'star-crossed' really feels like the opposite of her last album 'Golden Hour'. The atmosphere in this one is clearly coming from a place of emotional breakdown but also confidence, Kacey Musgraves brings to the table this time around, a maturity in production, lyricism, and her voice also matured as hell. It is much more pop than the last one, it has it's grooves, a little disco influence here and there, the strings are stronger also. Divorce is a difficult subject to transform into music, ... read more

'star-crossed' is Kacey Musgraves' fourth album, coming after her critically-acclaimed album, 'Golden Hour', which managed to win GRAMMY's Country Album and Album of the Year awards, with this album essentially being the end of the golden hour, moving towards something darker. The album is all about her divorce with Ruston Kelly, telling us how her marriage unraveled and how she found motivation during those dark periods, being based on 'Romeo and Juliet' I believe. Kacey hasn't moved as far ... read more

Após 3 anos de lançamento do aclamado "Golden Hour". Kacey volta com um álbum o qual representa o oposto do anterior com uma proposta mais intimista. Porém diferente do disco de 2018, que era seu melhor projeto, este é um de seus mais fracos, ainda que seja bom.

Durante esses ultimos tempos, Kacey Musgraves passou por alguns problemas relacionado a seu casamento com Ruston Kelly. Levando a um divórcio. Mas a artista aproveita a ... read more

I wish I liked Kacey Musgraves the artist as much as I like Kacey Musgraves the person, but I still haven’t connected to one of her albums yet. Sorry I’m a terrible Gay™️ y’all 😭😭

Three years after dropping the Grammy award-winning “Golden Hour”, Kacey Musgraves is back with her fourth studio album “star-crossed”, a record that is quite literally the complete opposite of its predecessor, surrounded by a much more darker and intimate concept. While the former saw her dealing with newfound love and had a calm and breezy aura, the latter comes after a divorce, which is the main theme of the project. The shakespearean title is used to describe a love ... read more

The anticipated fourth studio album "Star-Crossed" by artist Kacey Musgraves has finally arrived, an artist who has rocked the country music world with her distinctiveness and innovation. Her predecessor 'Golden Hour' won the big prestigious AOTY at the Grammys and was one of my favorite albums of the past decade, with extremely relatable lyrics and passionate melodies that perfectly match the singer. Consequently my expectations for this album were very high but unfortunately they ... read more

While I do enjoy a lot of aspects of this album, and I do think it’s decent, it’s just not executed as well as it could be and ends up being kinda forgettable as a result.

Coming into this album, I had seen people say great things about her music, and I watched her win the Grammy for Album Of The Year, but I had never actually heard any of Kacey Musgraves’s music before. So while I wasn’t expecting this to be my favorite album of the year or anything, my expectations ... read more

Kacey Musgraves’ long-awaited album “star-crossed” is a soft shape turn and her most ambitious project to date. While she doesn’t get stucked in the country style, here we can see a mix of rock, pop, indie and even spanish, contemplating her versatility and experimental intentions.

“star-crossed” has it’s disappointments. As Kacey had with her ex-husband - the inspiration of this album - spawning this entire project. The lyrics aren’t really what ... read more

star-crossed’ trata-se de uma tragédia moderna onde conta com melodias sutis que se destacam em cada verso.

O sucessor de ‘Golden Hour' ganhador do grammy na categoria de ‘álbum do ano’, é o projeto mais intimista e eclético de Kacey Musgraves. Desde o lançamento da faixa promocional intitulada ‘star-crossed’ era perceptível quais questionamentos e sentimentos que estariam compondo o mesmo.

O album anterior da ... read more

Kacey quer soar acessível o tempo todo, mas para um disco cuja proposta é relatar o término de um relacionamento, tudo aqui flui de forma enfadonha e, na maioria das vezes, densa demais. Ela não consegue prender a atenção do ouvinte como quando canta sobre o lado positivo do seu amor, e boa parte disso deve-se ao fato da mesma apresentar cansaço e desmotivação, sendo algo bastante compreensível diante das questões ... read more

Great album.

I'm somewhat if not quite surprised with this album, wow, I mean, Kacey really knew how to combine folk/country with pop. "Star-crossed" is an album which Kacey talks about after her divorce from her ex-husband, and the songs in both sound and lyrics are fully seen, I'll just say that I'm very surprised with this.

Favorite tracks: Star-crossed, Good Wife, Cherry Blossom, Simple Times,If This Was A Movie..., Angel, Breadwinner, Camera Roll, Easier Said, Hookup Scene, ... read more

É quase inevitável pensar em divórcio e não associar a palavra com um momento conturbado, permeado de dor e melancolia. Nesse sentido, foi uma grata surpresa perceber que Kacey abordou esse tema de um jeito menos melodramático e um pouco mais reflexivo, celebrando os aprendizados e experiências que a transformaram positivamente após o rompimento com seu ex-marido. Há momentos interessantes aqui: Star-Crossed é contagiante, Camera ... read more

Em "star-crossed", Kacey Musgraves aborda o fim de um relacionamento de uma delicada maneira que foge sempre dos padrões esperados. Em alguns momentos pode não existir uma conversa entre duas pessoas aqui, Kacey se vê refletindo sobre todo o seu presente e passado de maneira solitária em uma narrativa levemente expressiva.
A artista aqui se encontra em uma temática aonde ela estará sempre buscando e relendo trechos de uma mesma ... read more

My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

Following up a hugely acclaimed and successful album isn't always an easy thing to do, and Musgraves had a mountain of a task ahead of her following the critical praise levelled towards her last album Golden Hour: A masterclass in combining light pop country with subtle psychedelic influences. Truly one of the best country albums of the 2010's. So where would she go from there, especially following a rather tumultuous divorce from her ... read more

After a tough year, Kacey Musgraves makes her return with star-crossed, her fourth full-length album. In all honesty, it's hard not to compare this project to Golden Hour. Even though they're from such different periods in Kacey's life, the undeniable success of star-crossed's predecessor permeates the record a little. This album has plenty of its own amazing moments, however! Justified is a perfect example of how deeply Kacey's lyricism can stab you, even when deceptively simple. Her cover of ... read more

Desilusão! Depois do aclamado Golden Hour, Kacey traz um álbum monótono, com faixas que não se sobressaem dentro do álbum, sendo as já conhecidas justified e Star-crossed as melhores do álbum, junto com good wife.

Com letras sobre divórcio, as composições são sem dúvida o ponto forte do álbum, agora é esperar pelo filme pois acredito que as músicas crescerão dentro dele.

É um ... read more

I've never considered myself a big Kacey Musgraves fan. What I've heard of her past work it's been ok at best. But the more I listen to this new record 'star-crossed' the more distaste I find for it. On this record, Kacey pretty much rids of all her country twang, as this record is drenched in modern pop production, synthesizers, and a whoooole lotta compression. Which aren't bad things, but I just don't think Kacey is the kind of singer that should be doing this sound. For one, her voice is ... read more

As much as I enjoyed the last two tracks, it still didn't save the rest of the album from how one-note this record is. There's really not much variety of song structure, lyrical content, or style between most of these tracks. Other than that I really don't have too much to say about this. Some highlights for sure, but I found most of it to be kind of forgettable.

just as it’s easy to listen to, this records sounds like it was easy to make. it doesn’t have the same depth and emotion that its predecessor had, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad follow-up. kacey’s voice is so ethereal, if butter had a sound, it would be her voice (i know that’s a little cheesy but so it’s the theme here so let me be).

Kacey Musgraves is back, following up the three-year gap of time between the release of her critically-acclaimed, Grammy award-winning album Golden Hour and now. The result is star-crossed, an album that impresses in some facets while faltering in others.

Inspired by her divorce from her husband and muse for Golden Hour, star-crossed takes an entirely different shape than all the rest of her work, lacking the vibrance so apparent before. This is an understandable change, given the ... read more

She's so talented and adorable and sweet – not gonna lie, my expectations were higher, but it's great tho! Looking by an overall view, the melodies are really beautiful; I think Kacey manages to accurately blend her polished country with the pop beats in such a lovely way, making it a smooth experience. Her vocals are bright and vivid, I love how they bring a full color palette to the ... read more

FAVORITE TRACK: there is a light

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: angel

I'm really torn on this album. I definitely don't hate it but I'm not sure how to enjoy it?? if that makes sense?? Because this isn't a concept album but it plays out like that, focusing on the central theme of Kacey Musgraves' divorce. The album gets more cheerful towards the end but it has its moments of self-reflection and nostalgia for the good times throughout. But I feel like a lot of these songs can't be as enjoyable without ... read more

With the beautifully charming Golden Hour release in 2018, Kacey Musgraves immediately became my favorite woman in country music. I was excited to see how she would follow up on something so impressive. It felt like all the material she released earlier in her career was leading up to and finally culminated in that masterpiece. And then we get this.

I got a bad feeling about this record as soon as I laid eyes on the cover and title. I don't usually discuss cover art in my reviews much because ... read more
