CRITIC REVIEWS

83
Entertainment Weekly

It swings low and sweet — a refreshingly real dispatch from an artist expressing exactly what she feels in this moment, and nothing less.

80
AllMusic

Meaning of Life is one of her most satisfying albums: it feels like not just a collection of good tunes, but a statement of purpose.

80
The Observer
Heat is pure unadulterated joy, Medicine is 90s-era Mariah Carey-effortless, while Go High closes the album on a surprisingly experimental note. The big, syrupy ballads, meanwhile, accentuate Clarkson’s undeniably powerful voice, creating a comfort zone that feels genuine.
70
Slant Magazine

Meaning of Life doesn't reinvent the genre, nor does it try to, but it portrays an artist continuing to redefine herself—in the process, solidifying her position as one of her generation's greatest singers.

60
The Guardian

The strong, 90s diva-ish mood suits Clarkson’s belting vocal style, as she ushers in a more soulful phase with class.

An album I continue returning to, Meaning of Life does bring a lot of meaning to my life. Kelly is a talented singer and I love her voice and what she does with it as she approaches this new area in her music.

One of the best albums of 2017 but so underrated.

Okay wow at all of those high notes. There’s only a few songs that I don’t really bop to on this album and there’s nothing wrong with them, I just don’t vibe with them. This is her best album since Breakaway. Most of her albums since Breakaway have been about half quality and half filler. This is a really, REALLY big improvement for me.
