CRITIC REVIEWS

80
NME

Those vocals are the magic ingredient, saving potentially limp tracks from extinction. But it’s equally impressive to hear how confidently the debut holds itself together, flitting between styles but always shining a spotlight on a legitimate pop sensation.

Clash

A debut album brimming with confidence, confidence not only in Lipa’s own voice and her eye for a chorus, but in the emotive quality of her lyrics.

AllMusic
With the confidence and determination of a seasoned vet, English-Albanian singer/songwriter Dua Lipa crafted a delightful collection of catchy pop gems where the songs only serve to highlight her vocal prowess.

The 405
As the pop landscape changes and artists such as Shura, Carly Rae Jepsen and Lorde become bolder in structure, production and presentation it is assuring to see Dua Lipa has comfortably anchored herself in the category of pop innovator with this debut record.

On the strength of the material in her debut album you can expect it to be a dominant force over the summer.

The Line of Best Fit
This is Dua Lipa’s debut album, but it already feels like she’s been around forever.

The Guardian

Despite a few generic offerings, this is a solid pop debut that is high on summery nonchalance.

DIY

A lot of it, like album closer ‘Homesick’ featuring none-other than Coldplay’s Chris Martin, feels overthought and calculated. It’s a shame because those moments where Dua Lipa truly shines are those moments where she was allowed to just be herself.

A distinct, strong voice leads a wide arsenal of synthetic instrumentals that can provide both explosive and emotional background foundations with the same fluidity. Despite a few uninspired spots and occasional generic inflections, going as far as to say this is the pop album of the year would not be that big of a stretch at all. Quite the confident, solid debut.

Although Dua Lipa's vocal talent and the confidence she exudes in her music are obvious, they're outshined by a few generic and repetitive beats and weak lyrics.

I like her voice. I like her personality. I like some songs. I realy hope she evolves and becomes a big pop artist.

Her vocals make a strong statement bolstered by her unapologetic bravado nicely wrapped in buoyant, infectious electropop sensibilities.

Dua's electropop project is confident and magical but the instrumental similarities between each track on this record hinder her vocal talent.
