    Lo sounds as if she’s in the throes of a quarter-life crisis. And what a beautiful and messy one it is.

    Though this cache of innovations is often depleted, when utilized correctly they wield enough ingenuity to distinguish Nilsson from the rest of the pack.

    Some listeners may not warm to Lo’s persona, but her songwriting skills are difficult to fault (she’s also co-written hits for Ellie Goulding and Girls Aloud on the side). Aided by collaborators including Lorde producer Joel Little and Max Martin’s protégé Ilya Salmanzadeh, she keeps the hooks coming throughout.

    She's especially good making odd, even uncomfortable phrases seem as natural as hip-hop bons mots.

    Lady Wood is short, but Lo finds ample darkness to plumb.

    For this album, she made musical choices that hold back the songs.

    Songs like these and "Keep It Simple" make the most of Lo's big voice and personality on an album that, despite its provocative title, often feels more straightforward than Queen of the Clouds did.

The album greatly expresses the singer's depression and anxiety and humbly discusses sex and mentality. Songs such as "Cool Girl", "Keep It Simple" and "Influence" are very influencing indeed, but tracks such as "Imaginary Friend" and "Vibes" kind of turn the vibe down.
    Strongest Tracks: "Cool Girl", "Influence", "Keep It Simple", "Don't Talk About It", "True Disaster"
    Weakest Track(s): "Imaginary Friend"
