    Sassy yet surprisingly vulnerable. [19/26 Oct 2018, p.95]

    King has gotten a pretty good album out of a pretty bad spell, and we can use her candor and her voice--not just figuratively but literally, since those bluesy, gutsy tones rarely make it into any kind of rock and roll these days, much less the alternative kind.

    You can hear her map out her story, lyrically, as her impressive second album, Shake the Spirit, progresses.

    Its sonic audacity is so bracing, it's relatively easy to forgive the lyrical stumbles, which crystallize on the dirty puns of "It Girl," but that's nearly beside the point because, unlike Love Stuff, Shake the Spirit never seems indebted to Elle King's idols. Instead, it embodies her own bold, bawdy heart.

    Her voice is what stitches these songs together, though what is probably supposed to be evidence of her range often feels like she’s trying on musical costumes. The result is a lack of cohesion that turns Shake the Spirit into a series of genre exercises. They’re impressive for what they are, but there’s not enough depth to merit digging much below the surface.

    "Shake The Spirit" pode não ser um álbum muito coerente, mas a voz da Elle King sobressai-se, mesmo nas músicas liricamente fracas.
    6/10
