    Acting as both sultry invitation and empowered self-confession, the song is a clarion call for all those who deign to diminish the duo’s talents – talents that blaze through on Ungodly Hour with a full and unrelenting force.

    It's undeniably pretty: stacked with the kind of clean harmonies and gently syncopated R&B that doesn't so much demand ear space as sidle up to it, unassumingly.

    It’s not a full-bore masterwork: the first half of the record packs a stronger punch than the latter. But it’s a more cohesive, complete listen as a result of tighter sequencing. The Ungodly Hour is a soothing salve for a world on fire.

    There’s plenty here to suggest Chloe X Halle have the chops to rival their superstar mentor [Beyoncé].

    Frequently the sharpest Chloe x Halle songs are the ones where the sisters are the most hands-on.

    Their second album is a multi-faceted R&B treat, full of glistening vocal chemistry, sharp writing, and a self-determination you want to get up and cheer for.

    Ungodly Hour boffs along with sexy aplomb. But this is carefully collated product with its eyes on all the prizes, rather than a space for vivid artistic expression.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This album was a piece of art, so beautiful! They gave me variation, it wasn’t the same sound constantly. Took two listen but I was really hooked after the second. I found myself cooking and singing along to it in the background, it just warmed my heart and soul. Can’t wait to hear more from the girls, they’re so talented. Heard they produced and wrote most of it, which is amazing! Brought me so much joy to see two talented young black women shining, especially in times like this. Bright futures ahead! Expand
