    Each half of the album ends with a relatively sudden shift in pace (“Body Suit” and the contrastingly acoustic “Too Much Colour”), and when you’re consistently bopping along to track after track (which does also risk becoming monotonous, I know) it can be a little jarring rather than the breather they intended.

    Mature and focused, The Kick is a welcome return from Allen, a refreshing and ebullient collection that balances emotional introspection with pure physical joy.

    This is a worthy comeback for the singer that is fun, catchy, bright and ultimately another addition to the canon of necessary, escapist music we need to forget the world’s impending descent into madness.

    ‘The Kick’ doesn’t try to run or distract from feelings of loss and loneliness, instead it faces them head-on while celebrating the joy of being with others through it all.

    Much better than her forgettable second album, but not quite up to the quality of her debut. Overall, an enjoyable, fun effort. Great to seeMuch better than her forgettable second album, but not quite up to the quality of her debut. Overall, an enjoyable, fun effort. Great to see Foxes back.

    Best track: "Forgive Yourself" (which should've been a single)
