    With strikingly melancholic and childish vocals and a bunch of beautifully written verses as well as exquisite instruments decorating the whole spectrum of the album, this work pushes limits to another frontier and takes good material to an even better position, adding personal suffering and drama to a tasteful and joyful plethora. In other words, this is immaculate.

    I really do not know what to say, because Banks is a real and complete star. She gots all and still gots more. This EP just proves how full she is. I would heart it to the rest of my life. It is just the beginning.

    Nothing quite matches 'This Is What It Feels Like', but that alone is enough to give genuine reason to BANKS' mighty cause.

    She triumphantly succeeds in displaying what it means to not sugar-coat pop music in London.

    The fuse has been lit. London is just a prologue, but it’s an exceedingly promising one.
