This is the sound of an artist achieving her potential and finding a firm foothold in the excellence of her craft. Little Simz deserves every plaudit and prize coming her way, and if there’s any justice, they will arrive by the barrel load.

As the album draws to a close with a bible text read by the artist’s incarcerated brother, the listener is reminded of the notion that the closest we ever feel to god, is when we are confronted with a great piece of art. This is a magnificent album that is sure to be studied, remembered and written about in years to come. It is great art.

Liam’s inimitable charisma still inspires, still consumes, and the winsome Why Me? Why Not. is unmistakable evidence of this fact.

Even in its fragmented state Madame X spins as a more enduring album than Rebel Heart and maybe that’s the point.

This is both urgent and immediate for the moment, but timelessly classic at the same time—it is triumphant.

What this album most definitely is, is a carefully created and curated piece of musical history. An album that speaks to those eager to listen and yes, an album comprised of many dimensions and layers.

Whatever qualms I have about All Mirrors are comfortably outweighed by the pleasure I’ve taken in listening to it. Olsen’s vocals are gorgeous, the mix is great, the arrangements are even better, and the songwriting is imaginative and powerful. It’s a really, really great album and it deserves your time.
