one of pop’s finest voices over the last four decades unfurls across nine feminist bangers on this of-the-moment feeling first album in seven years from everything but the girl icon.
that voice, self-assured and richly-textured, yet confessional and affecting, spits out the lyrics on ‘Record’ with a fresh compelling drive. yet this is an album for living with in the daytime rather than for night-time introspection, adorned as it is with a refreshing no-fuss pop brevity. watch out for the nine-minute dubby disco jam though, with warpaint’s rhythm section on grove duty. “Thorn frames Record's songs within her experiences as a woman and mother, allowing for an immediacy to the music, which traces her first brush with guitar music through to a simple desire to enjoy dancing on a night out” 8/10 - exclaim
