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, 2022Caprisongs is her most buoyant, she doesn’t sacrifice her creative nonconformity or intimacy. She strikes a careful balance, akin to perfecting an arabesque on a razor blade, as she revels in production that’s carefree, cathartic, and completely life-giving.
Jan 18, 2022Caprisongs is the sound of twigs in the driver’s seat as she traverses her own curiosities and instincts; there is no man looming over the music, no weighty public narrative dictating its terrain. It is intrepid and light, the image of a woman attuned to planetary alignments but casting her own fate.
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.

It's Twigs' most digestible album yet and is a great stepping stone for more people to get to know the world's most off-kilter pop star.… Expand

Not that I have avoided her past works, but this is the first project I've gotten around to listening to...
With that in mind... I'm blown away! The soundscape of this record is so unlike what I typically connect with and that it makes it all the better, to lose yourself in...
I see lots of comments saying this project is a bit less conceptual than her works of past, but this really works for me in correlation with the fun and sporadic hyper pop production.
Twigs, does get in to some interpersonal struggles and there are some very perfectly placed audio dialogues throughout the project, that really flesh out the narrative.
Favorite songs are: Ride The Dragon, Meta Angel, Lightbeamers, Careless
I'm rating it a strong 8 to light 9… Expand
