Over the last few years, there are very few artists that have managed to balance the perfect pop sound with an experimental intention as well as St. Vincent. On her previous self-titled full-length back in 2014, we were treated to a new version of herself. One with a proficient confidence to try new ideas and the acceptance for her to do exactly what she feels has bled through into this new studio album, creating one of the greatest joys we have heard so far this year.
With a mix of catchy pop anthems and heart-yanking ballads, 'MASSEDUCTION' is quite simply one of the most perfect records we have heard all year. With a touch of social commentary, most apparent on the subtly titled 'Los Ageless', she has managed to write an album that is both unique in its delivery but also shows off her flair for exceptional songwriting that creates a real connection with the listener from start to finish.
We already knew that this album would be something special from the brief number of previews shared in the last few months, but this is definitely more than just special. We would go as far to say that this is her best work yet, and given the momentum behind her, we shouldn't expect her to stay quiet for long.
