  1. It's a nice album, and I really like her voice. The Ari Lennox collab is an early highlight.
    Feel like it could have done with an uptempo or two, to break it up as it's very mid-tempo heavy.

  2. This album could have definitely used some editing, some gems in there like Chocolate, Labels, and Protection, but then a lot of the tracks feel very samey.

    It’s a fine album, but yeah, it does not need to be 17 tracks long. It doesn’t help that basically every song sounded exactly like I expected, with Protection (and “Skiterlude” I guess) being the only mildly surprising things on it.

    Yeah it doesn’t need to be 17 tracks long, but it flowed together pretty well and didn’t seem like a chore finishing it. I may even like it better than the Ella Mai album. Hopefully she jazzes things up in the future but overall, I really enjoyed this album.

  5. This is so, so good, ugh! I agree with you all that it's too long with very similar vibes, so it could've used some editing (what's with the young alt-R&B acts and long albums?), but it's so good for these quarantine, melancholic days.

  7. I enjoyed the album much more than I thought I would. It's maybe a bit too long but I don't mind it, there's nothing I'd want to get rid of. "Good Girl." was the immediate stand-out to me.
     
  8. I love these wonderful Queen's!

  10. Just discovered this album it’s very good enjoyed it a lot . I agree it’s a tad long though I think the first half of the album is a lot stronger . She was starting to lose me a tad towards the end as it was starting to sound a bit samey . However for a debut album this is very strong !

    Edit: Second Chances is also STUNNING
     
  11. 'Plenty More' gives me big big 'Supermodel' by SZA vibes, especially when the outro hits. Great album, bit samey as everyone has said but still great.
