    Clocking in at 41 minutes, Speak Your Mind is a slick, well-produced offering that delivers on Anne-Marie’s potential without overstaying its welcome, the best British pop debut in a while.

    As her first official salvo into the pop arena, Speak Your Mind hints at an enticing amount of potential for Anne-Marie and her engaging vocals.

    At its best, the album is a selection of polished and inoffensive pop songs, but at its worst, it’s forgettable.

    The first half of Speak Your Mind is undoubtedly the strongest; showing Anne-Marie no one-trick pony when it comes to infectious, dance-worthy bangers.

    The highlights on this project are the glimpses of musical experimentation, but unfortunately the album doesn’t have enough of these to really shine.

    It would all be so much anodyne chart mulch, but Anne-Marie has something of a plain-speaking everywoman image too. Some tracks here connect a little deeper, offering common-sense snapshots of unglamorous lives.

    The title promises a hit of authenticity, but Speak Your Mind supplies only affectation.

Though, its the lyrics that botherThe production in the beginning is top notch but it starts to fall off later in the album (Bad Girlfriend). Though, its the lyrics that bother me the most. Especially, in "Perfect", the lyrics are cliche and uplifting which isn't inherently bad but its just so overdone. The lyrics just come across immature. Definitely skip the deluxe version (Breathing Fire is just...) There are too many producers, sometimes it works in an album (see; Isolation by Kali Uchis) but most of the time it doesn't. Overall its an okay debut, there are a few highlights though like; Alarm, Machine, Ciao Adios, Cry, Expand
