Amidst the increased popularity of nu-soul (which I like), it's so refreshing to hear some old 70s soul vibes that harkens back to the great Marvin Gaye, George Duke, Chaka Khan, Donny Hallaway, The Spinners, William DeVaughn, and of course James Brown. In this wild time warp, Bruno and Anderson radiate each other so flawlessly and the instrumentals are impeccably textured. This is definitely both of their strongest work to date.

Under all the its self-indulgent style, this album is pretty much generic pop wearing a costume to make it seem "current" with Tik Tok culture. But no matter how you bedazzle it, it's still painfully boring.

Am I in a fever dream? Such a remarkable and refreshingly bright hypnogogic pop debut. Fantastically colourful with dynamic progressions, infectious grooves, stylistic sound design, and an array of electronic and acoustic instruments. There's also some great reflective lyricism on insecurities, healing and growth amongst the unruly fervour. I'm very pleased with this release. Thank you Remi for this slice of queer sunshine.

Little Simz's cinematic storytelling continues to prove her as one of the greatest rappers of our time. Simbiatu is a FORCE and this album is an earth-shattering masterpiece.

Very impressive and powerful sophomore album. It's such a cathartic journey of heartbreak and healing, but done in such an exciting and creative way. I haven't heard an indie rock album this good since Julia Jacklin's Crushing.
