    Her foibles and off-kilter perspective on heartbreak offer shape and personality to a record that might otherwise be written off as too slick or inert, or indistinguishable from a host of peers making competent, spacious, and downcast pop music.

    [A] smartly produced arc-of-a-love-affair concept LP.

    The lyrical immediacy of the words serves her best when dealing with passion and hurt, but when she tries to excavate the mysteries of love, complexity eludes her.

    By owning her mistakes, she turns them into strengths--and delivers a winning first album in the process.

There are many highlights of the album, and it flows together really well. The album is divided up into 3 parts: "The Sex," The Love," and "The Pain." "The Sex" features pop bangers with sexual lyrics. "Talking Body" and "My Gun" are highlights of this section. "The Love" has great songs that tell of Tove being happy in her relationship. "Moments" (written by Tove only) is a highlight of this section. "The Pain" is full of heart-felt ballads where Tove's vocal range is really showcased. Her breakout single "Habits" is featured in this section. This album is great. I would definitely buy it on CD or on iTunes. It was worth my $10, and I'm contemplating buying it on vinyl as well. 10/10 Expand

    This is a perfect example from good electropop, not like the generic pop trash overrated 1989 and reputation

Every song has emotions, good lyrics , messages and a good melody . Young Swedish singer wanted to introduce herself on every step by every track ,who is very personal (and she's not ashamed of her feelings with her life!!!). I can't stop listening to the album and I hope it will never be boring!!!! Expand

    This is the quintessential pop album. Probably the best pop album I've heard since Gaga's own Born This Way, and the best pure-pop since FameThis is the quintessential pop album. Probably the best pop album I've heard since Gaga's own Born This Way, and the best pure-pop since Fame Monster EP. Very cohesive, never boring, and very banging. The songs are really good, and also have a very emotional sifde to them. To be honest, the singles do this album no justice. The best tracks are in the non-singles. Very good effort from Tove Lo, can't wait for the next.

    BEST- Thousand Miles, Got Love, Moments, Love Ballad, Talking Money, Timebomb
    WORST- The Way That I Am
