LP – Lost on You (2017)

After hearing LP’s voice on her duet with Mylene Farmer (“N’oublie Pas”), I eagerly got my hands on this record, feeling floored by the performer’s distinctive, emotionally charged sound. However, I’ll admit I found the overall album a bit disappointing. While it’s true that LP’s voice is unlike any other, it does have a tendency to sound thin after some time, and it’s unfortunate that each song requires so much of it, as its power is rather dulled by chronic overuse. That being said, there are a number of stand-out tracks like the lead single, with its poignant lyrics and heartrending vocal delivery, and the fun, vigrant “When We’re High,” which sounds every bit as alive as the performer herself. Overall though, the album reminds the listener that sometimes less is more.
