    It's the prettily composed ballads — wounded, swooning, steeped in regret — that tend to lead.

    The sound of “Love Goes” is sweeping and luxurious: intimacy blown up to cinematic scale. Each song feels elaborately hewed.

    Whilst Love Goes could have been an album containing only Smith’s newer dance sound, the album does offer something for all Sam Smith fans, to mixed results.

    In ‘Love Goes’ Sam Smith has produced a flawed but decent return that mirrors the introspection of this strange, difficult year.

    It’s nice to hear them taking a few small risks. Next, it’d be great to see Smith get really wild.

    Love Goes doesn’t quite have overwhelming moments to match the titanic power of signature hits like “Latch,” Smith’s career-making hit with house duo Disclosure, or 2017’s “Him.” In some ways, that’s OK.

    An album that exists to waft sadly, but unobtrusively, in the background.

    An CD with a pop ballade and a piano music, very cohesive. But any musics could be best , mainly in the start songs because have almost the same beat.

    Nada nuevo, lo mismo de siempre, al menos es ligeramente mejor que sus trabajos anteriores.
