    Even if the Eastern influence isn’t overwhelming there, the rest of Beautiful Lies flows together smoothly, perfectly soothing, never quite reinventing the water wheel, but never quite having to.

    With more life, richer texture, and an inspiring attitude, Beautiful Lies is Birdy's declaration that she is more than able to make her mark in the big leagues and join the ranks of the alternative pop pantheon.

    It’s certainly an adult-oriented, mainstream affair, pairing her with producers who have also worked with Adele and Florence and the Machine.

    For all the craft she shows, for all her ability to move and for all the promise of the zinging, Indian-inflected Growing Pains, Birdy is undone by an unwillingness to change her musical pace. [Jun 2016, p.110]

I usually don't feel the need of reviewing albums, but I just felt it was needed. Beautiful Lies is a perfect masterpiece; if you look back you'll see something great at Birdy's work but even in the past album when she wrote the songs there was something missing, some harmony, something about the edit and the order of the songs. There's no way of explaining it, it was there. By BL was able to make it perfectly, it's able to full fil my heart and soul when I put my headphones and ignore the world during a mystical hour.

Para mim esses álbum é EXTREMAMENTE LENDÁRIO E PERFEITO. E ansioso para o próximo cd dela Expand

    It's a nice album if a bit repetitive after a while.
    Typical sound that has been heard before, not very original.
