CRITIC REVIEWS

The 405

It's a beautiful bout of heartbreak via Twigs' honeyed vox and slithering synths. It's a display of sublime balladry.

Pretty Much Amazing

That her entire second EP has such a distinctive, cohesive sound that’s considerably more than the sum of its fascinating parts suggests the attention FKA twigs ought to be paid from here on out.

Tiny Mix Tapes

EP2 is a refreshing and remarkably concise collaborative effort, showing that, given the right push, FKA twigs is more than capable of crafting an environment that is stimulating on both aesthetic and intellectual levels.

80
Pitchfork

The level of detail is immense, but never too fussy. Still, the sense of space from EP1 is largely gone-- even in its sparsest moments this is a work that bears down on you, barely allowing any room to breathe.

DIY

The progression between ‘EP1 ‘and this release is arguably the role of Arca, whose abstractions create a perfect foil for Twigs to showcase the maturity and confidence in songwriting.

Consequence of Sound

FKA Twigs has crafted a distinguished and distinguishable sound, and a keen ear for how her plaintive, yet powerful voice works in the spaces of her productions.

AllMusic

Barnett still only has a handful of songs to her name, yet the way she brings together vast spaces and dense sounds, as well as love and pain, makes it a stunning body of work.

The Line of Best Fit

While EP2 is conceptually an intriguing release, the slowness of it as a whole can get decidedly tiresome.

Taking production duties and with the help of Arca, twigs crated at the time a more abstract, dreamy and experimental version of her debut. As you should expect from any project Arca is in, the production here is top notch, combining her experimental chops with twigs' sensual and atmospheric sound sound to create an airy, soft and dreamy musical experience.
Twigs improved immensely in such a short time as a vocalist, and that's a big compliment considering how great her singing was on her ... read more

Another amazing display of how good of a vocalist Twigs is

FKA twigs discog dive #2
This is a necessary add on to her debut EP as her collaboration with Arca in production builds up perfectly for a debut LP which was released the year after. Twigs still sticks to her original sound as the alternative R&B is still present, though the electronic sound brought to the table is very noticable, especially on the opener "How's That". This was an amazing opener for an amazing EP which felt much shorter than 14 minutes due to the minimal lyrics ... read more
