Pitchfork

Decades into their career, this J-pop superstar continues to evolve—both musically and personally. BADモード reads like a friend’s gentle reminder that we’re always coming into our own.

PopMatters

A great dance-pop record is a marriage of great songs, appealing vocals, and innovative production. Hikaru Utada’s Bad Mode fits that bill. It’s a classy and elegant affair.

Bad Mode may tease its renaissance qualities more than it fulfills any of them, but it takes a fair shot at subtly shifting Utada’s goalposts while ticking the boxes of what is, at the end of the day, just another Utada Hikaru album.

Utada Hikaru, um dos maiores nomes do pop japonês, volta com mais uma peça extraordinária da artista, que mesmo não sendo seu melhor trabalho, ainda é um disco encantador e que provavelmente será um dos meus álbuns preferidos desse ano.

Sonoramente, Bad Mode é extremamente interessante. O tom dançante acaba contrastando muito bem com os momentos mais calmos. Agora, em relação à abordagem lírica, o que vemos aqui — quando se trata de questões pessoais — é algo que chama a atenção, porém, sem muitos destaques.

Melhores faixas: "BAD MODE", "One Last Kiss" e "Darenimo Iwanai".

Somewhere near Marseilles might just be the best song of the decade

The songs in this album are actually decent, I like them. However, the whole album structure is a mess ------ it seems like a 73-minute album with 14 tracks, in fact, there are only 10 tracks plus a bonus and another version of Find Love and another two versions of Face My Fears.
That's to say, it is a comfort to listen to the first 10 tracks while it is a torture to listen to the rest.

Between their voice, the sound and production, and the song writing maturity, this album is fantastic. The whole thing stands out in this mature and beautiful way.
