"Feeding the Machine" is an expressive and free jazz album that, although sometimes flat, is very innovative and experimental in nature. Despite of its creative experimentations, the album overall is a little bit underwhelming, and there aren't many places that stand out especially, making it a very forgettable listen.

Despite its title, "Special" is nothing but a generic mix of pop songs that are anything but special. The songwriting here is subpar and flat, with a mostly boring vocal tone. There are many projects out there of the same style but executed better, such as her last album, which in my opinion is much stronger than most of the stuff here. I don't know what to think about the lyrics, super repetitive and weird, which I try to ignore as much as I can listening to this. There isn't a ... read more
