    A masterpiece that puts MØ firmly on her own pedestal as an individual artist rather than a recurring feature.

    Over the course of the record, MØ finds her own identity again. And although Forever Neverland features Diplo, Charli XCX and Empress Of (two of which for whom she’s returning the favour), they never overshadow her; a refreshing angle considering she’s been the featured one for the past few years.

    While tracks like 'Beautiful Wreck'--springy, satisfying and by no means a misfit within this gripping offering--seems quite bland in comparison to the rest which boasts a bold sound, the album remains fascinating, never misses a beat and keeps you listening through to the end.

    Is Forever Neverland the most mainstream indie album for a while or the most indie mainstream album? With hits like these, songwriting as accomplished as this and production as tight as this, it surely matters little either way.

    Forever isn't a huge creative leap forward, but at its best--particularly on dancefloor-friendly laments such as Beautiful Wreck--there are moments that hint at brilliance. [Nov 2018, p.109]

    Forever Neverland contains enough catchy moments to warrant a listen, but mostly remains fodder for de rigueur 2010s alt-pop playlists.

    The new record from MØ is obviously inspired by a lot of fellow-pop ladies, such as Lykke Li, Sia, and Tove Lo. It is heavily and beautifullyThe new record from MØ is obviously inspired by a lot of fellow-pop ladies, such as Lykke Li, Sia, and Tove Lo. It is heavily and beautifully produced, even though some beat-breakdowns feel forced and out of place here and there. MØ's vocals are raw and unfiltered, sending a feel of authenticity throughout the whole project.

    As stated before, the productions are original and grand: for instance, the usage of a vocoder for the build-up in songs such as 'Blur' and 'Beautiful Wreck' give the songs a feel of vulnerability. 'If It's Over' is catchy, and feels like a sequel to the previous MØ-XCX collab 'Porsche' on Pop 2. 'Nostalgia' is a bold step forward, and the verses are basically just told, instead of being sung, which is reminiscent of songs such as 'Timebomb' by Tove Lo. Other songs are just so full of energy and make you wanna get up and dance ('I Want You' is a true banger).

    However, at a certain point, the album starts to feel repetitive and, somewhat, tiresome. 'Red Wine' being placed towards the end of the record, feels like some of the songs that precede it were put in a blender and mashed together. Maybe tracks like 'Imaginary Friend' and 'Trying to be Good' are quite interesting, but the listener is kinda bored at that point to even focus on them.

    All in all, "Forever Neverland" might not be the most timeless pop record of the year, but it definitely does its job and is a very enjoyable listen, even if it's mostly for its first half.
