    On her stunning debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, the now-19-year-old channels a similar magical vibe as the art-pop superstar [Björk].

    [The] big pop moments are the most thrilling, moreish moments on All My Demons but there are quieter moments where AURORA also excels.

    Still a teenager at the time of the album's release, Aurora proves to be an already skilled fashioner of dynamic, affecting pop.

    AURORA’s release packs a moody, but unexpectedly positive punch, throwing her amidst a sea of artists who do the same.

    It's not the show-stopping LP some might seek after the strength of the singles, but All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend is more than enough to convince us she's a talent with more than two great songs in her.

    While the intermittently minimalist production sounds vaguely voguish in a trip-hop kind of way, that sparseness often gives the songs a slightly anodyne quality. It makes for a record whose potential power feels dampened, if not neutralised altogether.

    Such an amazing album. Her voice, wrapped with the simple backtrack makes every song sound absolutely breathtaking. You can feel the emotionSuch an amazing album. Her voice, wrapped with the simple backtrack makes every song sound absolutely breathtaking. You can feel the emotion seeping from almost every track, especially on Murder Song (Acoustic), which features a tear or two if you listen at night! Winter Bird is another amazing song, which uses winter as a metaphor in such a beautiful way. But the bonus tracks are also worth a listen, especially the goosebumps laden Wisdom Cries. Expand

    On a first listen Auroras frail voice and perspective can give a rather childish impression. Don't be fooled. This is an amazing album. ItsOn a first listen Auroras frail voice and perspective can give a rather childish impression. Don't be fooled. This is an amazing album. Its deep and dark theme matches perfectly the soft crystalline voice of the artist. Listening to a message of despair while blissfully curling up in a sofa with an expression of serene pleasure on your face is a listening experience to relish.

    Auroras style of dreamy dark synth-pop flavored with what I think is best described as viking-folk is addictive as it is mesmerizing. Do not miss this album.
