    Her rich, soulful vocal sounds wonderful on the darker material. [Oct 2013, p.98]

    The songs depict a torrid breakup, and she has restless yet tightly controlled electronic backdrops that suit her mood. Whether she merely had to get this out of her system or has found her true voice, it's one transfixing emotional hell of a follow-up.

    Samson & Delilah casts the English singer and songwriter even further afield, a mesmerizing right turn into the murky waters of throbbing R&B and ambient dance pop.

    It doesn’t quite always work, but it is a promising reinvention.

    This is easily one of the best albums I have ever listened to. It took me some time to fully appreciate this since V V Brown's music styleThis is easily one of the best albums I have ever listened to. It took me some time to fully appreciate this since V V Brown's music style changed a lot, but now I totally adore it. The album is much darker than its predecessor, melodies are more complicated and vocals are much stronger and distinctive. Expand

However, the songs on this that grab your attention do so very well and the lyrics and melodies are very thought provoking and pleasant to listen to. Expand
