    The album is not only one that fans will cherish for years to come, but it will surely be the record that draws a whole new generation of fans into her deeply personal, and always captivating, world.

    The 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.

    Given time and careful attention, CAPRISONGS unfurls to reveal the richest and catchiest melodies twigs has written so far. Its mystique melts into you.

    Caprisongs 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.

    The 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.

    Caprisongs 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.

    There’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 may not hit the dramatic highs of Magdalene and the featured artists on the album are unmemorable and unneeded, but Caprisongs stillIt may not hit the dramatic highs of Magdalene and the featured artists on the album are unmemorable and unneeded, but Caprisongs still manages to fascinate with its high end, experimental production and its accessibility. 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

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

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
