    Fans of complex, smart pop will be attracted to Williams' attention to detail, but the songwriting itself is also deeply melodic and more lyrically and emotionally honest than before.

    The resultant sound is crisp and lovely, and on a clear mission to please its other (the listener, maybe?).

    Gilding the Lily at it’s core really is a good album, it just doesn’t have enough present to differentiate itself from the pack.

    There are plenty of vocal effects and a seductive use of harmonies, but they're seldom more than pleasant. [No. 111, p.61]

    The artist's 3rd album constitutes the h-pop formula at its most unremarkable.
