A bit repetitive stylistically, but it works more than I would have expected an environmentalist electro pop album would. Not buying the hype that this is a really innovative album or anything, but it is worth a listen.

A good electropop record with environmetalist subtext unfortunately marred by political ineptitude like the horrible lead single "Drone Bomb Me" where she takes the form of an afghani girl pleading to be droned to death so she can join her dead family....... It isn't insightful, it's just orientalist.

After a couple of record where Antony seemed to have lost his ispiration, he changed his name, his sex, and made the best 2016 record.
A stunning production by Oneohtrix and beautiful voice and caustic lyrics by Anohni.

She uses her art for good. And on top of that it's a great listen!

From johnner
Proof that the day of artists producing difficult, boundary pushing albums is far from over, Hopelessness is a dazzling and thought-provoking piece of work. Leaving behind the previous baroque-rock stylings of before for a more contemporary, electro feel this is a brave and exciting step forward for ANOHNI.

For an album I really didn't have much expectation for, I thoroughly enjoyed this. From the vocals, to the catchy instrumentation and obviously the socially conscious lyrics, this album is a must listen to any fan of the synthpop genre.

A haunting, beautiful beast. This is a protest record alright and Anohni captivates track after track, with that gorgeous voice of hers. The instrumentation is lush, varied and compliments it nicely. One of the best of 2016.

Huge album, one of the best this year so far. Stagnant at some points but carries itself nicely.
