    FLUX situates itself in and around the broad category of rock and its derivatives, but what it really does is encapsulate Poppy's desire to evolve through genres. ... With this album, Poppy very clearly says that her new niche is to not have a niche.

    A set of excellent songs. It’s a cohesive, largely understated collection, too.

    Poppy is ready to leave her mark upon the world again with this hook-focused album that favours front-to-back consistency over constant mayhem and it makes you wonder what’s next.

    “Flux,” with its sharp focus and even sharper songwriting, could be a sign that the world is ready to focus — even if its residual chaos makes one need to let out a scream now and again.

    As good as Poppy’s previous work was, this is a whole new level.

    Music has always been just one aspect of the Poppy multimedia experience, but Flux makes it finally feel like the most important one.

    Even though it's not as stylistically wild as prior efforts, Flux is a step forward for Poppy's songwriting and her ability to command a full band. No longer just the girl in the computer, she's become a fully realized human with this most authentic and earnest work.

É mais um álbum único diferente dos anteriores, explorando mais gêneros e continuando o "fluxo" em sua carreira musical.
    As faixas são bem pessoais, e algumas melancólicas, e causam uma mistura de emoções, como a sensação de alegria e tristeza ao mesmo tempo. É o álbum mais pessoal de Poppy, e dá para sentir que ela está fazendo o que ama, e que está no caminho certo, e no caminho que quer seguir.
    Poppy se reinventou mais uma vez.
