CRITIC REVIEWS

88
Paste

Full of slide guitars, driving percussion and that voice, Alexandra Savior’s debut arrives as a fully-realized and confident force of nature, the kind of sound that could become her personal trademark if she keeps with it long enough.

80
DIY

Dry wit and effortless elegance run throughout, which makes cinematic, poetic wonderment out of eye rolls and humongous sighs.

AllMusic

Savior's sound and imagination have been effectively realized and captured here in a magnetic collection of songs with an almost Lynch-ian/Coppola-esque cinematic feel to them. An impressive debut from a very promising songwriter, hopefully with more to come.

GIGsoup

It’s an album not without its flaws, but it would be unfair to paint ‘Belladonna…’ as anything other than a great debut album. It’s a confident record that boasts great vocal delivery, excellent arrangements and plenty of style.

60
Pitchfork

The young American singer launches her career with a slinky, vintage album featuring production from Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner—though it sounds more like Turner side-project than a showcase debut.

40
The Skinny

It’s hard not to think that Belladonna of Sadness, stylised as it is to within an inch of its life, is not a fairly straightforward grab for some of Lana Del Rey’s market.

Alexandra is a great songwriter and the first two songs can show that. She has such a great potential to do another albums with songs that don't lock herself into a experimental lo-fi that made the trajectory of Belladonna a little bit boring.
