    Since it's inextricably linked to the eponymous movie -- which generated plenty of controversy and public outcry for its portrayal of a non-verbal autistic woman by Sia's longtime public stand-in, neurotypical dancer Maddie Ziegler -- MUSIC might suffer from that burden of connection, which is a pity because it's actually quite good.

    The highlights aren’t enough to make this album feel as vital as top-notch Sia efforts – namely, 2014’s ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’ or 2016’s ‘This Is Acting’. For the most part, these are reasonably catchy pop songs that become forgettable after their last chorus.

    Taken as part of Sia’s own unfolding character arc, songs like Courage to Change have their moments, but it’s hard to dispel the discomfort surrounding the entire project.

    Ultimately though, Music is a case of too much filler, too little killer, even when divorced from its controversial origins.

    What Music lacks is a great hit to pull it all into focus.

    Sia's previous triumphs have set a high standard, one that Music doesn't meet. Her "awesome" intentions aside, the album's messages of affirmation and encouragement may be well-meaning, but ultimately fall short while underlining Music's broader, damaging issues.

Cada vez tengo más miedo y desconfianza de tal por el simple hecho de que solo hace falta una multitud de personas reprochando a algún artista por alguna cuestión personal, alejada de lo que es el campo artístico, para que el trabajo del mismo sea totalmente escupido por los "profesionales". YA NADIE LES CREE. Grandes como "The Rolling Stones", "The Angeles Times", "NME", etc etc han perdido toda la validez y la credibilidad que solían tener. ABURREN Full Review »
