CRITIC REVIEWS

Northern Transmissions
Fun but deep, the album is one that will make you smile and want to jump on the ride again and again.

AllMusic

Exploring new directions with experimental confidence, an ever-playful BØRNS takes the necessary steps in artistic maturation on Blue Madonna, a worthy and satisfying follow-up for the mischievous Lothario.

The Guardian

Its influences result in a record that is full of hypnotic melodies and easy charm, but you couldn’t claim Blue Madonna heralds the birth of a particularly distinctive talent.

The Observer

There are moments of transporting brilliance, particularly during Iceberg, Tension and Blue Madonna, but Borns’s best work is surely still to come.

His androgynous vocal flexibility and gushing melodies can be distinct, but the lack of meaningful songwriting and emotional depth suggests he has more to offer. Børns musical footprint has been stamped firmly down, but this album doesn’t clinch it.

Pitchfork
The second album from the rapidly ascendent synth-pop star Garrett Borns offers more of the same: great ideas constrained in songs that rarely allow them to come to fruition.

The quality of the production supported this composition to ... read more

I find this guy so annoying for many reasons which go from his voice to him using his fame to f*ck with minors so I can't be impartial but I highkey love what he's doing instrumentally.

Highlights: Blue Madonna and Bye-Bye Darling.
