    For all the thrills that Pixx’s precocious ambition offers on Small Mercies, it’s Hannah Rodgers’ vulnerability and restless search for comfort within herself that drives it.

    Rogers remains her forcefully idiosyncratic self throughout, endlessly impressive in her ability to draw on electro-pop history yet not be beholden to its past. [Summer 201, p.115]

    Small Mercies may not be quite as immediate as The Age of Anxiety, but it's fizzing with energy and ideas that prove that Pixx the right person to sing about what's wrong with the world.

    Lyrically, Rodgers can be stilted and adolescent at times, but she hits the sweet-spot on the compellingly stern electro-goth chant "Disgrace" and the terrific title track. [Jul 2019, p.33]

    Small Mercies doesn't highlight a single aspect of musicality within a track. Pixx doesn't take a riff and make it the centrally active part. The sum really is greater than its parts in Pixx's latest effort.

    Small Mercies is not a complete success, but Pixx’s creative voice remains unique.

    The synths are generally leaner and the production darker, while guitars butt in for the grungy turmoil of Bitch and Mary Magdalene. [Jul 2019, p.86]

    Ace second album, especially the first five songs. Title track is excellent.
