    She and Greenspan refract techno-pop in their own way while binding additional forms of electronic post-disco that cross four decades, from boogie to juke.

    Lanza, the antithesis of the ululating, overwrought antics of the X Factor school, has an arsenal of talents that puts her in a league of her own. She’s very much for real.

    It’s a testament to the extraordinary breadth of Oh No, as Lanza metamorphosizes from an intriguing curiosity to a formidable contender in contemporary electronic music.

    Wrapped in a overwhelming number of influences, Oh No vaults across an infinity of cultural milieus to find itself.

    A more exuberant sophomore effort that synthesises the techno-pop of Yellow Magic Orchestra and the electro-R&B of '80s hitmakers like Midnight Star. [Jul 2016, p.75]

    Oh No is an inventive and enjoyable pop record that only falls short of Lanza's own standards.

    Oh No doesn’t quite signal a reinvention for Lanza, but a move towards one end of her capabilities, one which consistently brings excitement, energy and openings for new paths for her to head down.

This song felt like a song pulled from an 80s style indie film. That track is followed by another 80s style track that has more of a dancing feeling to it. "Never Enough" is the next track that also feel like an 80s song. (etc....every song sounds like an 80s style song). Even though most of the songs feels like an 80s style, She made it very enjoyable.

    This is a very creative album with very catchy lyrics. You will probably start singing songs from this album after listening it.

    All of the tracks on this album sounds great. All of the tracks on this album felt like it could appear on a GTA Vice City station. This album is a step up from her last album. If you enjoyed her last album, you will probably enjoy and love this album.

    Overall, this is an outstanding electronic, down-tempo R&B album. One of the best of the year.

I'm aI recently saw Jessy Lanza when she was opening for Junior Boys, and being a big fan of theirs, I was immediately drawn to her music. I'm a big fan of electronica, but what I especially like about Jessy's music is that it's a bit experimental. Her songs are sophisticated and meticulously crafted, and her melodies are a bit unusual and occasionally meander around in unpredictable ways. Her music isn't very immediate, but it's the kind of stuff I find myself coming back to over and over again. Anyway, Oh No is overall a pretty good album. I really like the faster beats on this album, especially songs like VV Violence and It Means I Love You. Some of the slower songs get kind of boring, unfortunately, and I think they could use with some more memorable hooks or something, but overall, the album flows along very nicely and is a fairly enjoyable listen.
