    These tracks are vibrantly cross-pollinated, touching upon lush a cappella ("The National Manthem"), R&B flamenco ("Love a Girl Right"), and buzzy, exotic club bangers ("Wasabi"). No question, Little Mix are in charge here.

    Little Mix’s candidness throughout is admirable, even thrilling in its bravery.

    Ultimately, despite a few high points, LM5 is so scattershot, both thematically and musically, that it’s hard to find much to grab onto.

    LM5’s flaws aren’t really down to its US-focused slant, unwittingly funny though that sometimes is. They’re the classic flaws of today’s pop albums: it’s too long, its highlights appearing amid boilerplate filler, including the ho-hum Monster in Me and American Boy. ... Padded it may be, but the strike rate is high enough for LM5 to prolong Little Mix’s career even further, at least in Britain.

    Little Mix albums have always struggled to find their own identity, and LM5 still owes too much to Beyoncé’s flirtation with hip-hop and top-40 trend chasing. It’s frustrating.

    LM5 is the culmination of the band’s growth over the past seven year. Yes it may sometimes musically miss the mark; but with its strong and relevant message it’s something of a milestone for the band.

Mixers have grown up with the girls and finally have the mature Salutesque album we've been asking for. Each listen will leave the listener feeling confident, uplifted and ready to take on the world.
    As an +21 Mixer I couldn't be happier.

    However, I do hope LM release an edited version of the album for their younger fans.

    Little mix reinvented themselves again: this album mix pop & urban in a perfect way, they haven't done anything like this before! Every songLittle mix reinvented themselves again: this album mix pop & urban in a perfect way, they haven't done anything like this before! Every song looks different from the others, but in all of them we can found amazing harmonies, spectacular bridges and all the strenght that has always characterized the girls.
    Moreover, the videos released so far are very nice and powerful!
    Good job, LM!

Unico defeito é o excesso, no final o álbum se enfraquece e acaba sendo repetitivo fazendo uma parte do trabalho ser em vão. Expand

The new single '' strip '' achieves the feat of making us turn off the sound as the first few seconds of melody begins. It's scary and embarrassing. Expand
