Mar 24, 2023The manic and swaggering rock cuts that colored Superstar and their preceding record, LONER, give way to thoughtful and layered shades of art pop, fused with some soaring arena-worthy highlights.
UncutMar 24, 2023Nakedly intimate narrative of self-discovery. [May 2023, p.35]
Mar 24, 2023The sense of fun that buoyed Loner and Superstar is muted on The Art of Forgetting, but the intelligence and songwriting chops are very much there, and this music brilliantly merges form and content, an exercise in pop music as therapy that's intensely personal and easily relatable.
MojoMar 24, 2023The Art Of Forgetting swings between joy and darkness with a boldness and coherence that is a marvel. [May 2023, p.84]
Mar 29, 2023Caroline Rose’s portrayal of a new beginning during the first three tracks of The Art of Forgetting is visceral and guttural. ... The tracks remarkably set the pace and atmosphere for the entirety of the record.
Mar 29, 2023Caroline Rose’s most personal album to date which, while it may not have the immediacy of Superstar or Loner it will, given time, prove just as emotionally affecting.

But individual songs, as carefully articulated as they are, tend to get swallowed up by the overarching psychological thrust of The Art of Forgetting: This is a mood piece capturing a specific frame of mind, even a particular era.

However once you get past the preconception of what a Caroline Rose album should sound like you'll discover an absolutely phenomenal album.

I was fairly surprised to see Pitchfork gave it a 68.. seems like whomever wrote that review is not able to connect with Caroline's reinvented sound. I have to admit, it was such a pivot from Loner that I was a little taken aback by it. But in giving it a chance, and a real listen, it opened up and revealed its beauty.
Love this record.
Thanks Caroline!… Expand
