    It's full of compact songs that steal your heart and leave. [Dec 2018, p.107]

    Considerably brighter, both thematically and tonally, than its predecessor, the album ascertains the guileless exhilaration of love.

    Empress Of takes listeners into a rich sonic environment on Us, while placing careful emphasis on the emotional territory she ventures into. The universality Rodriguez has sought to embody the record with is present, yet the vulnerability she is known for remains.

    An endearing, and wholesome end for an album so wonderfully content it it’s own bubble.

    Though there are hints of doubt and yearnful ambiguity associated with detachment and abandonment, littered throughout, Us is a project album radiating with friendship and the comfort of simply being next to someone.

    Where it differs from the debut is in lyrics that are heartfelt but deliberately less personal than Me.

    Us struggles to consistently reach the vertiginous heights of “When I’m With Him” or Me, but at the album’s best, Rodriguez’s revealing narratives of fractured relationships and lonely adolescence strike somewhere deep, to the point that, if you listen close enough, her warm, whispery voice almost begins to sound like your own.

    A truly incredible album, blew my mind. Lorely outdid herself, and I couldn’t be prouder, been following her for a while now.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Very consistent, if slightly disappointing compared to her debut. The buildup to and reward in "When I'm With Him" alone makes this worth listening to in my opinion.
