    ‘Serpentina’ speaks to her craft, elevating her talents as a musician as she sheds through her layers and births a new and transformed performer.
  2. ‘Serpentina’ is a welcome reintroduction to the artist and a cathartic ode to doing things your own way.

    While it may prove inconsistent to some, the experimentation and exploration ensures the album remains exciting, as you never know what’s arriving next. If the intention of this album was to show a rebirth, it succeeds, as Banks seems reinvigorated and ready to fearlessly conquer the demons that dare cross her path.

    Though she once again flashes her talent for delivering emotionally wrought tales of heartbreak, Serpentina asserts its uniqueness in paradoxically conventional and unsurprising ways.

    This album at its best can be genuinely explosive – see Holding Back with its booming trap beats and chipmunk-soul hook – but Banks’ central problem on Serpentina is how to channel emotion without straying into musical indulgence, and how to evoke situations without wallowing in them.

    Not quite pop perfection, but it has its moments.
  7. 40
    SERPENTINA isn’t a coherent whole but rather a doggerel and ill-considered mishmash of disparate parts.

    "Serpentina" amplifies the lack of edge and risk BANK considers to journey with on her artistic performances.

    Every banks album is so underrated it hurts. Each album she puts out is unique and ground breaking imo and this album serpentine is anotherEvery banks album is so underrated it hurts. Each album she puts out is unique and ground breaking imo and this album serpentine is another hit. I've enjoyed every song..I don't know how she keeps doing it because no one makes music like banks and still brings a complete different sound and vibe to each project. Favorites so far are **** love, holding back, and meteorite. ❤️❤️ Full Review »

    Serpentina is art. Banks can express their felling with the good music
