    Her debut record, SOUR, will be a contender for best pop album of the year. There are no filler tracks on SOUR. Each song represents a different side to Rodrigo’s artistry, embracing every influence that’s shaped her music, while still creating something fresh.

    Nuanced and often exceptional debut album. ... Songwriting flourish is emblematic of what Rodrigo has learned from Taylor Swift on this album (which, in shorthand, is Swift’s debut refracted through “Red”): nailing the precise language for an imprecise, complex emotional situation; and working through private stories in public fashion.

    A collection of polished, precociously accomplished pop that doubles as one of the most gratifyingly undignified breakup albums ever made.

    When it works, it really works.

    For the most part, Rodrigo has passed the bar she set on that single [‘drivers license’], sharing with us an almost-masterpiece that’s equal parts confident, cool and exhilaratingly real. This is no flash-in-the-pan artist, but one we’ll be living with for years to come.

    Her combination of sweet melodies and bitter moods, her conversational flow, and her self-awareness are all skills many songwriters twice her age would love to call their own, and they make Sour a well-rounded emotional journey and strong debut album.
  7. 60
    At times, it feels as though the polite, considered Rodrigo could push ideas, emotions and melodies a little further than she does. ... But this is an incredibly impressive debut from a singer who’s only just learning to stretch her wings.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It starts off big with "brutal", especially the line "I'm so sick of 17, where's my **** teenage dream". Then there's happier an amazing song that she wrote by herself. I think jealousy, jealousy is my fave tho, and there's also the singles which are amazing; deja vu one of my fave songs of all time.

    vulnerable and sentimental, Olivia drowns in her sour feelings and brings flavors that young people in her teens experience.
