after the years of Lorde clones a la Halsey populating the alt-pop music scene I don't think anybody really expected Lorde to explode back in with such a revolutionary album. it's remained a fixture in my top 5 albums and I think it will stay there for decades to come.

From JulianR
I have been slowly convinced that this is not just a masterpiece of pop, but of music as an art form. It is currently in my top ten. I never would have expected a modern chart-pop album to end up in my top ten, but there it is. It's so fine tuned, so well crafted, so monolithic at its most powerful and so desolate at its most... desolate? Maybe its because I come from a rock background (basically an anti-pop background, really) but I feel like I don't have the right vocabulary, lexicon, even mindset, to talk about pop music correctly. It's spoken of in different terms. Reading pitchfork reviews alone can tell you that talking about pop is just different. What makes pop pop is its ability to tap in to a more primal, immediate enjoyment, it seems. But even that sentiment seems wrong. Oh well. I'll have to resign myself to saying its the best darn album I've discovered this whole year, and leave it at that.

O grito de uma jovem adulta que resumiu sua geração. Inquietos, transitante entre o escapismo e a militância.

I don't get why this album is ranked so highly. As a huge fan of her first album, this one seems to lack all the things that made the original so appealing. The production is sharper, but lacks the same kind of meloncholic tinge that made the first album so impactful. The songwriting seems flaccid. This album didn't come at a time when Lorde's sound was so necessary; context matters, and when her first album dropped it was something new in a sea of sameness. Ever since people have aped her style and now this is like self-plagiarism.

Damn, that voice! Hard Feelings is the highlight for me, that's such an interesting and bold solo thing. Love it. But the rest is so good as well

From the moment I heard Pure heroine for the first time I knew that this girl was special. Four years later, she released this killer album. Lorde's mature and poignant commentary on fame, youth and modern society comes to fruition thanks to her always solid lyrics and mesmerizing voice, and the production is now richer than it was on her debut. She is one to keep an eye on, for sure. I only wish more pop records were as good as this one. Favourite tracks: Homemade dynamite and Sober.

From Gionzi
Completely out of my usual listenings. That definitely raises the value of this review, I think...
A brilliant expression of this decade, a quality product from a certainly charismatic singers, which is Lorde. A complete work, never equal to itself, containing the little big jewel Liability, probably the best song of the year.
