Αποθεωτικές κριτικές για το νέο άλμπουμ της LP. Παγκόσμια υπόκλιση για την 40χρονη Αμερικανίδα ερμηνεύτρια και δημιουργό



Η νέα δουλειά της LP (Laura Pergolizzi) φαίνεται πως μάγεψε εκτός από το πιστό κοινό της, ακόμη και κάθε έγκυρο κριτικό «μέσο» παγκοσμίως.

Το 6ο κατά σειρά άλμπουμ της με τίτλο Churches, που μόλις κυκλοφόρησε ολοκληρωμένο, θεωρείται ήδη μια από τις πιο σημαντικές κυκλοφορίες της φετινής χρονιάς.

Ενδεικτικά:

The Independent (UK): “New album is LP at their best: cursing and worshipping at love’s altar. ★★★★★”

Billboard (US): “Churches acts as a love letter of sorts to a world that’s been saddled with a lot of pain and heartbreak — nowhere on the album does she give into despair, instead always choosing to focus on the sweeter, kinder parts of life and love. …Churches also accentuates LP’s one-in-a-million voice, allowing her space to show off her skill and soulfulness on each subsequent track.”

SPIN (US): “With Churches, LP releases all the systems, relationships, and institutions — real and imagined — that have failed (them). It’s the sound of a divine exhale…” “(Their) voice, a glorious warble that spans five octaves, has incited bidding wars between major labels.””

Daily Star (UK): “An album to worship.”

American Songwriter (US): “The operatic singing, keen-eyed songwriter who is known for epic songs… (Their) work is stunning.”

Exclaim! (Canada): “The singer-songwriter finds churches in unconventional places, worshipping at love’s altar — in relation to both others and the self — by embracing the qualities of myriad genres, shifting from synthpop to indie rock to country-folk in fluid sweeps.”

Flaunt (US): “Musical Banshee, melancholic rebel, headstrong gambler and lyrical truth-teller are just a few of the words that come to mind when attempting to describe the enigma that is rockstar, fashion icon, and recording artist LP.”

TMRW Magazine (UK): “…an artist who creates pure poetry, which just happens to be sung along with some killer melodies.”

Για το single “GOODBYE” έγραψαν:

Billboard (US): “Filled to the brim with warping sonic landscapes and the singer’s distinctive vocals… (‘Goodbye’ is) the hit of serotonin we’re all in desperate need of these days.”

Grimy Goods (US): “…a soul-soothing and cathartic new track that taps into the singer/songwriter’s penchant for big folk-pop anthems… LP has always excelled at penning emotionally sincere lyricisms and disguising them behind impossibly catchy hooks and chorus lines that you can’t help but howl from the heart ….”

MXDWN (US): “…a perfect song for the summer.”

Για το single “ONE LAST TIME” έγραψαν:

Earmilk (US): “…an emotional rollercoaster that we all want to ride… It’s hard to think of a voice in modern music as hypnotizing as LP’s, and (their) knack for pulling at your emotions is unmatched.”

Grimy Goods (US): “(LP) has unveiled (their) sparkling new single ‘One Last Time’ with accompanying cinematic visuals. The song possesses a soft affection while also exuding a power so fiery and fierce, you can’t help but immediately be moved.”

Buzz Bands LA (US): “The single is another of LP’s outsized pop anthems, this one lamenting the transience of relationships…”

This Song is So Sick (US): “LP always manages to create songs that break your heart but feel like a celebration…”

Για το single “HOW LOW CAN YOU GO” έγραψαν:

Billboard (US): “A sultry new song…filled by LP’s intimate vocal delivery.”

Diva (UK): “…a song with swagger, pensiveness, and sultry attitude, reflecting the mixed emotions born out of late-night adventure, self-exploration, and the rollercoaster of love, as told through LP’s personal vocals and intimate delivery.”

Double J (Australia): “…a jaunty and enjoyable number from the American singer, one built off a steady four-four beat and a hypnotic guitar line.”

Για το single “THE ONE THAT YOU LOVE” έγραψαν:

Billboard (US): “LP wields (their) distinctive vocals like a surgical knife on (their) latest single ‘The One That You Love’.”

The Independent (UK): “…full of sweeping, spaghetti western flourishes and (their) signature vocal belts.”

Vanity Fair (Italy): “(‘The One That You Love’) could be the next ‘Lost On You’ which made LP famous all around the world.”

Buzz bands LA (US): “Cowboy boots on. Gloves off. LP has returned with a new single, ‘The One That You Love,’ a rocker with a Western flair, a gunslinger’s swagger and, of course, vocals you could hear from way down the canyon.”

RFM (France): “A powerful and instantly catchy track, in the pure lineage of (their) planetary hit ‘Lost on You’.”

ABC (Australia): “…(They) have an unbelievable voice. Super versatile and incredibly powerful. On ‘The One That You Love’ (they) use it to its full extent… The production that has been crafted for this cinematic beauty is almost as brilliant as (their) voice.”

Idolator (US): “…soaring chorus… …raw emotion…. …stunning…”

Yorkshire Times (UK): “LP boasts a vocal that everyone wishes to emulate but can never quite be copied. The One That You Love is a striking anthem which draws you immediately in and refuses to release you. Not that we wish to be released…”
