Critic Reviews

  • The London songwriter’s mesmerizing second album turns towards porous, avant-garde love songs that celebrate kinship, change, and the wonder of quotidian experience.

    Rating: 85/100
    Pitchfork
  • It’s a record all about the feeling and the vibe and offers you time and space to really engage and get lost in the little world she creates.

    Rating: 80/100
    Dork
  • It captures the quiet humdrum of life at its most unreal, blearing domestic love and childrearing and sleep and exhaustion into something suddenly, amazingly unfamiliar.

  • Taking cues from her early mixtapes, Tirzah's songs on new album Colourgrade function as sketches that build to create a heavy yet rewarding listen.

    The Skinny
  • The sonics are strange and hard to recreate: they are forward thinking but in some ways ageless, a natural fit for Tirzah’s magnetic voice.

  • An experience rather than a neatly structured set of songs, Colourgrade is a strikingly honest audio portrait of love and creativity. It was a bold choice to make an album that's this much of a grower when attention spans are shrinking rapidly, but like the relationships Mastin and her friends allude to, it's well worth investing the time in Colourgrade.

    AllMusic
  • Tirzah Mastin’s loopy, drowsy, sultry avant- soul lullabies continue to explore the fuzzy dreamspace between experimental sound art and R&B on this sporadically bewitching second album.

    Uncut
  • Thick with meandering thoughts and whispered confessions ... Colourgrade is the morning light: sharp, intentional, with greater clarity in its movements.

  • To say the least, Colourgrade can be something of a challenge, and certainly an intentional one. Tirzah seems to wonder just how far we’re willing to follow her into the maw. There’s nothing else quite like this available, yet this doesn’t make it a particularly pleasant listen.

  • This is a record with a deep commitment to experimentalism.

  • Somehow, Colourgrade has both brought us closer to Mastin and left us feeling like we don’t know her at all.

  • This album would not be for everyone and I find it harder to lose myself in then her former more well-produced stuff. As an album of songs its lack in production is glaring.

  • If a devil-may-care attitude is the album’s strength, it also can be a weakness. Songs hit or miss by chance, the product of unmoderated experimentation which can so easily become indulgence.

  • At its unpredictable, eclectic best, Colourgrade creates a quietly wondrous connection that’s tough to shake.
