Jan 26, 2022It may lack some of the avant-garde experimentation and concepts of her full-lengths but after all she’s been through and all that she’s given us, CAPRISONGS feels like a victory lap.
Jan 18, 2022The diversity of styles on CAPRISONGS would likely end up a disjointed mess in any other hands, but with twigs (and her stacked team) on hand, it all sews together brilliantly. It bounces back and forth from outwardly confident to more stately anthems of self-love, and even songs that might seem throwaway in isolation are key in sequence.
Jan 13, 2022Given time and careful attention, CAPRISONGS unfurls to reveal the richest and catchiest melodies twigs has written so far. Its mystique melts into you.
Jan 14, 2022CAPRISONGS is light on its feet and more accessible than her tricksier electronic work but, whether she's delivering dancehall, hip-house, afrobeat or drill, almost all of these are songs which could only have twigs' name on them – take the glitchy, snatched vocals on 'ride the dragon' or the elegiac harp at the end of 'lightbeamers', mixed among the sub-bass and the hi-hats. CAPRISONGS is a testament to twigs' voice.
Jan 21, 2022The way Barnett shares tracks and experiences on Caprisongs makes it a more diffuse listening experience than her past releases, but it also brings a galvanizing openness to her music -- and suggests pain doesn't have to be her only muse.
Feb 10, 2022Small blemishes aside, CAPRISONGS is cool, calm, composed, and immediately apparent.
Jan 13, 2022There’s a lot that’s laudable about Caprisongs. Not least its desire to keep moving and changing – enough that complaining about something as straightforward as a paucity of memorable tunes almost feels miserly. But equally, it’s something that ultimately impedes your enjoyment of the album. As a soundtrack for the start of a night, it doesn’t quite pan out as you might hope.

Jan 14, 2022A great album from a great artist! She really talks herself in these songs and we are really thrilled to listen her.

In aOn her 2022 mixtape "CAPRISONGS" FKA twigs doesn't show herself as experimental anymore, but more versatile and diverse than ever before. In a bright, relaxed tone FKA twigs keeps moving and changing, trying out new things over and over again.
With calm R&B, brilliant art pop and dancehall on hip hop beats, she combines the best of many genres with finesse. Unfortunately, some songs can't keep up with the high standard because they are simply too plain and trivial. But that's easy to overlook – also because of the emotionally sharp lyrics. Overall a very strong 7 out of 10.
