TORRES - Three Futures

Sonic exploration and expanding outside of comfort zones is always commendable, but it should be a means to an end, revealing something new and interesting about an artist. "Three Futures" treats its new sound like both the means and the end. No one can accuse Mackenzie Scott of not pushing herself, but it's unclear why exactly she went in this vaguely arty synthpop direction, since it doesn't suit her particularly well. It's an inherently hit-or-miss album, with her humor and bravery carrying a number of tracks in the first half. But the misses are common, most obviously in "Helen in the Woods" but elsewhere too, and they usually involve a poor approximation of her strengths. This is a crowded genre, and Torres's risks do nothing to help her stand out from the crow.d.
