Final Grade: A-
Lianne La Havas is my new shit. Well, her and Emily King. I've been talking both of them up so much since listening to their albums. I really love Lianne's voice, it's super fresh and has such a great tone to it. After "Age" I knew I was going to like her, and it was great to hear that this album justified my prediction. Like most albums, I felt the first half was better than the second. "Don't Wake Me Up" is one of the dopest opening tracks I've heard in a while, and followed by tracks like "Is Your Love Big Enough," "Au Cinéma," and "Forget," there was no stopping this lady! She has such a great style, both musically and in terms of fashion, and I just love everything she's bringing to the table. I was a little disappointed with the end of the album, but only because the beginning had been such a knockout. I'm definitely going to be checking up on this chick plenty, because she's about to be hot shit. Man, I really hope this is the direction popular music is about to go in. Please.
