CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

Creating her best work with In the Meantime, Alessia Cara proves that any process of healing is never black or white and doesn’t exist on a straight line.

NME

At 18 tracks, ‘In the Meantime’ meanders a bit towards the finish, though there are no real duds here.

80
AllMusic

From start to finish, lolling hooks flood Cara's mind as much as indecision, skepticism, and other negative thoughts. They make all the bad stuff go down easy, enabling the listener to have a proper sulk that soothes.

Northern Transmissions

She really takes her time over 18 tracks to tell a story about love, heartbreak and eventual growth. This album isn’t for the less curious but for fans of Alessia Cara, her third musical instalment brings them closer than ever before.

71
Pitchfork

Alessia Cara’s moving and mature album is a sleek ode to in-between states, whether they are relationships or her career track as a pop star.

Rolling Stone

The Canadian pop singer’s third LP offers he own spin on the many stages of romantic grief.

8/10

I could say that this is her best album, without a doubt, Alessia plays between genres such as pop, contemporary r & b and r & b which I think sounds good, and although it is a fairly long album, it does not feel heavy to listen to and is very enjoyable.

Torci o nariz quando vi que o álbum tinha dezoito faixas, mas preciso confessar que achei tudo bastante agradável. Sim, o álbum perde força do meio para o final, mas a produção diversificada e a voz da canadense não deixam a experiência se tornar maçante ou desinteressante. Os destaques ficam precisamente para Best Days, uma melancólica canção sobre a juventude e a supervalorização do passado, e Lie ... read more

"E se eu for um péssimo modelo, e se estiver com medo?" No seu terceiro álbum de estúdio, Alessia Cara aborda temas como inseguranças, incertezas, solidão, morte e ansiedade. As Letras escritas durante um período difícil da cantora acompanhadas de agradáveis produções com diferentes géneros musicais contribuem para o melhor trabalho da artista até ao momento.

O álbum começa com uma ... read more
