    Rather than coming across as naïve, Shura has created something hopeful and delightfully light in this record, setting it apart from much of pop’s current offerings. It is the perfect soundtrack to the end of summer, and all the months after spent remembering it.

    Steeped in vivid details of a queer romance, Forevher partners jubilant pop with its ideal mate: physically charged songs of electric devotion.

    forevher is a supremely catchy, slightly experimental (the horn sections in ‘princess leia’ couldn’t go unmentioned), but chiefly fun pop record that implements plenty of ideas that are completely new to Shura’s arsenal. ... With a sound this infectious and spellbinding, Shura has undoubtedly found her calling.

    Forevher is the sound of a woman happy, in love, and going from strength to strength as a songwriter.

    This album is purposely ambiguous. By omitting such boundaries, it offers a storyline recognisable to everyone. Love is universal!

    forevher is an excellent comeback from Shura, proving that she is more than the sum of her capacity to go viral.

    Shura has made a perfectly good pop record, but in her unashamed, subtle and normalizing presentation of queer love in the form of mainstream music has, actually, produced something conceptually revolutionary. Not in the music itself, but that might just be the point!

    Unstable potential. The first two attempts failed miserably. As forevher goes through, it gets quirkier and well built. And the more it goesUnstable potential. The first two attempts failed miserably. As forevher goes through, it gets quirkier and well built. And the more it goes toward the end, the more facile it gets. While it’s not uncommon to recycle 1980-1990s pop ambience and love stories with nowadays production, ultimately this album stood out and gave different colors. Shura still has the potential. Expand

    Shura still continues to impress me. After an amazing album like Nothing's Real she comes with this really different gem that is Forevher.

    Latin Fan Review (In spanish) : Es un disco increíblemente melódico, con ritmos nostálgicos pero con toques de modernidad que lo vuelvenLatin Fan Review (In spanish) : Es un disco increíblemente melódico, con ritmos nostálgicos pero con toques de modernidad que lo vuelven contemporáneo y su impecable producción lo convierten en un deleite para quien aprecia este estilo de pop electrónico (que se orienta mas al indie-pop, dream pop). Realmente aprecio las letras y la voz de Shura en casi todas las canciones. 'Religion' es una de las mejores expresiones de todo lo anterior mencionado. Expand
