90% Drowned in Sound A while back, a journalist wrote something on the Quietus about how pop artists should stop trying to be more than pop music.
85% The Line of Best Fit
85% The Line of Best Fit
80% God is in the TV As one half of Slow Club she’s arguably one of the best voices in indie rock in the last ten years, each album better than the last even as the songs seem to be more individually focused , written from either Taylor or bandmate Charles Watson’s viewpoint.
80% The Guardian She is needy, vengeful, sly and covetous across these 16 songs, sentiments often delivered in falsetto lurches and supported by hefty backing vocals that underpin the sense of Taylor as a formidable presence.
80% DIY Magazine From a project titled Self Esteem, ‘Compliments Please’ may sound like another statement of insecurity.
80% The Skinny Expressing the need to be a separate entity from a band and gaining the ability to make the music she wants to make, it provides the perfect launchpad for the album's first track proper, single The Best, with its 'I did the best that I could, babe' refrain; it's instantly impactful and marks Taylor's intent with Self Esteem.
80% Music OMH Taylor has spoken before of her love of big, bright, intelligent pop music and how she felt that her former band could have been holding her back in creating that sort of music.
80% Under the Radar Magazine This fact makes Rebecca Lucy Taylor's debut solo record Compliments Please such a beguiling pop prospect.
70% Loud & Quiet Recorded with Johan Karlberg of The Very Best, ‘Compliments Please’ is an intensely physical set, packed with playful touches.
