    The pleasures of Weird reward frequent listening. It is an album that begs repeating as soon as one reaches the last bouncing notes of "Do It to Music."

    Far from reclusive, Weird is a gregarious, idiosyncratic pop album that invites the listener to meet it on its own terms, but Hatfield is absolutely fine if it's rejected. She's cool being on her own.

    The songs are bolstered by a generally unsettled sound throughout. Yet rather than opt for a tumult, Hatfield maintains a persistent pulse and an air of determination.

    Veering through infectious reflexions on self-imposed domestic isolation (“Staying In”), being contentedly single (“It’s So Weird”), confectionary-addiction (“Sugar”), rampant life commodification (“Everything’s For Sale”), the fake news-mired polity (“Paid To Lie”), personal body and space dishevelment (“Broken Doll”), these are some of the most consistently likeable Hatfield cuts of recent times.

    Now and then she's too laconic for her own good but the self-deprecating humour of "It's So Weird" and "Staying In" hits the mark. [Feb 2019, p.27]

    Weird turns inwards, detailing the 51-year-old’s enduring awkwardness with a self-effacing candour.
