Jan 11, 2019It’s clear that Rogers took her time to create a project that encompassed her journey thus far and is bursting with energy and daring you to dance. More so, she doesn’t stray from slower, emotional ballads like “Past Life”, a track that bears a resounding similarity to early Stevie Nicks, proving the duality of her craft. If anything, this record is a formal announcement: Maggie Rogers is here to stay.
Jan 22, 2019The charts are starved for something real and down-to-earth, and her songs, while heavily produced in comparison to some of her folksier beginnings, have an earnestness to them that can’t be fabricated. Rogers’ career may have first sparked on the internet, but now it’s a fire burning IRL.
Jan 25, 2019Rogers is listed as coproducer throughout, but her distinctiveness only comes through when Kurstin and some of his other high-profile production accomplices (Kid Harpoon, Ricky Reed) take the day off. ... In contrast, Kurstin--with Rogers listed as a co-conspirator--swamps many of the remaining tracks in virtual choirs of wordless backing vocals and squiggling, squirming keyboard and synthesizer textures.

Her creative way of tell a story insideMaggie Rogers's debut album is already one of the best project you're going to listen this whole year. Her creative way of tell a story inside melodies is actually her most powerful way of conquer our hearts with her well-produced sound. Since songs we've already know ("Alaska" and "On+Off") to singles we respect and sing with our souls out ("Fallingwater" and "Light On"), the album gain strength and keep on focus all the time. Also I hope "The Knife", "Retrogade" and/or "Burnign" to be the projects' future singles. Can I say it's perfect? Yes, I can.… Expand

Rogers layers an Indie/Folk vocal styling on top of classic synth pop and if don’t find yourself dancing by the end of its runtime, I would be incredibly surprised. Dance tunes are stronger than the ballads, but it’s phenomenally well produced and I’m officially excited to hear more from Maggie Rogers. 8.5 out of 10.

Jan 18, 2019Sometimes Maggie Rogers manages to create a hook that is appealing, but more often than not, her music is uninspired and lacks uniqueness. ISometimes Maggie Rogers manages to create a hook that is appealing, but more often than not, her music is uninspired and lacks uniqueness. I remember watching Pharrell react to Maggie Roger's rather normal song "Alaska" with teary eyes at the NYU school of music, as he claimed it was unlike anything he had ever heard (if you haven't seen the video it is easy to find on youtube). I wasn't sure if Pharrell saw the potential she had as a profitable and approachable musician in the industry, or if he genuinely thought her music was unique. Either way, her music is not as special as people say it is, and it doesn't compete on the level of other albums receiving similar user scores.… Expand
