    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.

    Do you want my opinion?
    Little Mix was created and idealized as a teen pop girl group. I think in all their 4 albums there's a big variety, but Salute and LM5 are alike, shows the woman empowerment with a high dose of feminism. All of us knows that this industry is misogen and machist, unfortunelly the especielized critic do not see the group big changes. I think that this girls borned to R&B and hip-hop and for this they uses their big idols como referências. For me, this album is absolutely out of bubblegum teen pop and personally I LOVE IT. Women, not teenagers singing "Take a sip of my secret poison" and they not wanna be Beyoncé, they want let your mark. I'd hoped a note little better than that (70 to be honest). But, the industry want girlband singing about sex, be submissed to men, dirty songs, like fifth harmony always did, and maybe for this they have a profile with 72. This world...hmmm, ok I am a fan of good music, i don't care for numbers or sales, I care for talent, and this girls always captvated me, a lot more now.

    Crítica do blog Saga das Músicas: É um disco cheio de hits dançantes, mais até do que baladas românticas – o que geralmente não acostumaCrítica do blog Saga das Músicas: É um disco cheio de hits dançantes, mais até do que baladas românticas – o que geralmente não acostuma acontecer, já que o drama é sempre o sentimento mais fácil de se colocar no papel. É realmente um álbum muito bem pensado e estudado, não há como afirmar o contrário. Já tem um lugar guardado na lista de melhores de 2018. Creio que isso se deva ao fato de que há sempre um produtor diferente em cada fixa, assim o disco não fica repetitivo. O que incomoda é realmente o fato de que são muitos compositores trabalhando em um único CD e as baladas, por mais lindas que sejam, ainda são muito segmentadas e limitadas 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
