Review: Like I Used To by Lucy Rose

Like I Used To by Lucy RoseLucy Rose’s best attribute is definitely her voice – sweet, if not syrupy, delicate yet occasionally punchy. Showcasing that in an album can be a problem: do too much and you lose the charm, do too little and you end up with a boring record. Her debut release, Like I Used To, toes the line, with mixed results. The best moments are definitely the simpler tracks: “Shiver”, “First” and the heartbreaking “Be Alright”. But I still love the production on “Lines”, an approach that doesn’t always work on other tracks like “Don’t You Worry”, which just sounds overwhelming. I understand the need for variety, and the effort Lucy exerts here is worth noting – but it does lead to an album that might sound like half of it is filler. | 3/5
