    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

    In anticipation for the release of her sophomore album, I'm deciding to review this album just to point out how much a solid 10/10 record itIn anticipation for the release of her sophomore album, I'm deciding to review this album just to point out how much a solid 10/10 record it is. I remember when my bestfriend and I used to blast it in his room, and I'd only focus on 'Talking Body' and 'Habits', and maybe some of the The Sex part. However, a year later, I found myself coming back to this album, until i memorized every single lyric in it. The production is shiny. The hooks are catchy. The vocals are on points. Every song is single-material. Highlights are 'Thousand Miles' and 'Timebomb'. This album is pop perfection. Let's hope Lady Wood picks up where QOTC left off. Expand

    Such a great pop album! Tove Lo's music is pretty standard euro/synth pop, but she brings a fierce confidence to it that makes it sound freshSuch a great pop album! Tove Lo's music is pretty standard euro/synth pop, but she brings a fierce confidence to it that makes it sound fresh and invigorating, while her idiosyncratic lyrics make her stand out from other similar artists. I also like how the album is divided into 3 sections: The Sex, The Love, and The Pain. It makes Queen of the Clouds into sort of a concept album, which isn't too common in this genre. Overall, this is a solid debut with a bunch of strong songs throughout.

    Standout tracks: My Gun, Talking Body, The Way That I Am, Got Love, Thousand Miles
