    Remy is at her most confident as a writer and singer on Poem, and, by working with others, she’s created the fullest realization of U.S. Girls yet.

    In A Poem Unlimited never preaches its messages--it purrs them, the melodies letting them percolate slowly. Remy has taken on today's biggest topic and made it sparkle. [Mar 2018, p.105]

    As activist hashtags #MeToo and #TimesUp bear weight and stage heavy resistance against a significant and still increasing population of men with power, Remy’s words prop up the cause, not quite providing the movement its anthem(s), but certainly offering its reason(s) why.

    This is the most rewarding album from the project yet, as it only seems to unfold further and further as you delve deeper and keep replaying.

    In a Poem Unlimited offers certainty over contradiction. Remy may loathe violence but understands the pleasures of getting mad. The songs offer a release from moral uncertainty.

    She hasn’t lost anything, just slipped her message into an unusually sleek, attractive covering where we might not have been looking for it.

    The message of US Girls hides under an instrumental output which is far more intriguing than its lyrics--the music is a bit too good for its political musings to be wholeheartedly focused on.

Besides, of being a little bit political and emotional, the harmony, arrangements and the entire album purpose embraces this magnificent work from U.S Girls. The musical style reminded me bars songs and music for whorehouse (a well-frequented whorehouse LOL). However, is quite special album with high-quality content, critics in opposite to people silliness and emptiness; furthermore bring out the 90’s, 80’s (my accuracy to distinguish decades is terrible, sorry) mood, fashion and accurate descriptions of dance clubs, situations, society and more…

    Listen: “Velvet 4 Sale”, “Incidental Boogie”, “L-Over”, “Pearly Gates”, “Poem”, “Time”.

To experience it fully, you have to progress through the first quarter of the album, which isn't U.S. Girls' finest work. However, after that hiccup, the album kicks into full gear in all its danceable glory. Expand
