The Telegraph

On softCORE, which very much deserves to be the 26-year-old artist’s breakthrough album, the singer-songwriter soars highest when she pours gasoline to glittery pop conventions and lets loose as a menacing punk.

Beats Per Minute

For an album so desperate to say ‘Look at me! I’m different!’ it’s a surprisingly cohesive and convincing relaunch.

Pitchfork

On softCORE, the New Jersey native mashes pop punk grit and airy R&B. It’s a commendable undertaking, but the execution is rough.

I have a light headache...
This album is all over the place. It can go from chaotic and loud, to calm and soothing at certain points of a song, and in all honestly, even though I'm assuming it was supposed to be intentional, it kind of annoyed me. It got to the point where in some of the more calming songs from this album like "let u back in," I felt paranoid that I was just going to get scared by some random screaming at any point in time.

Can't say that there's no redeeming qualities to this album but too often, the songwriting seems to be in service of odd aural components that overburden its 12 succinct tracks. Fousheé merely flaunts her eccentricities instead of incorporating them organically into the mix.
