    Goldenheart functions as a hypnotic aural distraction, but little more.

    Richard is a talented artist, and her musical palette and tenacious personality remain consistently interesting, but when it comes to conveying emotion, falls back on the same tired tropes that have made many conventional R&B acts feel so exhaustingly familiar.

    The results have been slow and messy and atmospheric, full of contemporary R&B's customary ingredients (virtual strings, AutoTune, gold-plated emotion) but stretched out, heavy on atmosphere, light on hooks.

    I hear a lot of potential here. The production, themes and vocals are spectacular but the lyrics, melodies and overall delivery needs to be worked on.
