Northern Transmissions
While Remy brought stirring art-rock on her last album with touches of a deeper sound, she transcends from weird indie rock to a commanding presence amidst a wicked swirl of dance and dark synths. Forget the sophomore slump, U.S. Girls has achieved their best album to date and calls from a host of influences that will leave you breathless.

Exclaim!

Groovy and scintillating, but with depth and meaning to spare, In a Poem Unlimited is U.S. Girls — and pop music — at its very best.

The Line of Best Fit
The album is undoubtedly going to end up on many writers’ end-of-year lists, and it’s only February. Remy and her co-conspirators have truly set the bar for great records in 2018, by drawing from the best elements of nocturnal power from bygone eras. It’s all here – just wait and see.

God Is in the TV

The exceptionally well-written and frankly funkalicious sixth album In A Poem Unlimited, sees Meghan Remy a.k.a U.S Girls tackle controversial subjects with intellectual wit, sprinkles of audacious sarcasm and imaginative songwriting.

NME
Powerful, potent and bloody good for dancing to, ‘In A Poem Unlimited’ might just be the soundtrack to the revolution.

AllMusic

Sprawling and complex as In a Poem Unlimited's structures and styles are, it's U.S. Girls' most immediate collection to date, in terms of both sound and message.

The Guardian
It’s protest music, in the guise of joyous, life-affirming pop.

The 405
This is the most rewarding album from the project yet, as it only seems to unfold further and further as you delve deeper and keep replaying.

Paste
Rem is as mercurial as ever, shapeshifting her voice and the music surrounding it as easily as she switches characters.
70
Loud and Quiet
This is deep pop — sincere yet witty, offering reflections on violence and power set to a dizzying-mash up of vintage-inspired grooves.

Drowned in Sound

She has been building towards In A Poem Unlimited, and she has arrived here at exactly the right time.

DIY
This is a political collection more easily listenable than ANOHNI, and more danceable than Björk. But the message of US Girls hides under an instrumental output which is far more intriguing than its lyrics – the music is a bit too good for its political musings to be wholeheartedly focused on.

Enjoyable purely as an extremely solid, well-crafted pop record but also as a protest about the abuse of power by men no matter how big or small, In A Poem Unlimited is the album Meg Remy seemed to have worked towards her whole career. A near perfect accumulation of her aesthetic and sound.

Highlights: Rosebud, L-Over, Pearly Gates
