    underwhelming. it used to be... every song stood out and the albums much fun. this one just bleeds into ears - so forced and annoying. i'd give 'lola' a go, others are just boring.

    With The Origin of Love it sounds like he's sacrificed that youthful glee in his songwriting for club anthems that aren't really all that mature.

    The result is persuasive, likable grown-up pop without that off-putting jazz-hands factor. [Nov 2012, p.99]

    It is an accomplished pop album but one that struggles to make any sort of lasting impression.
