Jul 2, 2020Across the whole album, Ware’s voice fills each moment with incredibly lustful longing. It feels timeless more in its emotionality and drama than even in the sound itself, which stays firmly strapped to a bygone era. Her nostalgia feels like a proper tribute, mostly because it digs so deep to the core.
Q MagazineJun 18, 2020While she could let her hair down a little more, this record finds plenty of sweet spots between melancholy and euphoria. [Summer 2020, p.107]

Noted Ed Sheeran apologist Jessie Ware (or, as I now refer to her as, Jesus Ware) has blessed us with her magnum opus: the album of the millennium, 'What's Your Pleasure?' - I really didn't think she had it in her after her last effort, 'Glasshouse,' was so sedate I couldn't even muster up the energy to be put to sleep by it. Alas, she decided enough was enough and gifted us with twelve sacred dance bops for the ages.
Immediately upon starting the album, you have to ascend after hearing her God-given vocal talent... but there's more! What privilege it is to hear such exquisitely produced dance music in the year 2020, a year where some artists can't even write an actual chorus or avoid anemic "drops" even the most basic EDM producers would be ashamed to put their name to.
It seems some reviewers are so flummoxed by what they've heard (or perhaps have been listening to too many *cough* Sines from Above that their judgment has been clouded) they have given it such a limp score as 3 stars... pay them no mind, because when you hear this holy grail of an album, you will—as she preaches on the sermon "Save a Kiss"—"keep on hitting rewind".
'What's Your Pleasure?' you hear her ask. Desperately searching for your scalp that has been wiped clean off by this album, you plea: where's her GRAMMYs?… Expand
