Album Review: Desire, I Want To Turn into You by Caroline Polachek

Great, Based on 4 Critics

Under The Radar - 90
Based on rating 9/10

Though Desire, I Want to Turn Into You is nominally Caroline Polachek's sophomore album, she is far from a newcomer. Indie aficionados most likely recognize her singular vocal stylings from the 2000s synth pop duo Chairlift, but she has always had a taste for creative eclecticism. She has released a pair of experimental albums under the monikers Ramona Lisa and CEP, amassed producer credits behind the scenes for Beyoncé and Solange, and dueted with other rising pop stars like Christine and the Queens and Charli XCX, all before finally earning renewed acclaim with her 2019 solo debut, Pang.

No Ripcord - 60
Based on rating 6/10

Every so often, perhaps once a year, the skies part, God smiles down upon us, and the music critics all agree on the One Chosen Record. This is the record that gets immediate tens across the board, without any benefit of hindsight (and what hubris to anoint a record 10/10 — with all the implicit cultural significance that carries — without reflecting on its staying power!) It doesn't seem to matter if it's actually deserving (Fiona Apple's Fetch the Boltcutters), though it's typically at least a marvel of production (Beyonce's Renaissance) or lyrically affecting (Phoebe Bridgers' Punisher). But without fail, it happens, and in 2023, it happened early.

Clash Music
Opinion: Fantastic

Few artists have seen a meteoric rise in recent years quite like Caroline Polachek; sidestepping away from band-work to solo, then stepping out from the umbrella of pseudonyms and monikers to truly unleash her solo star power upon the world. Her debut record, 'Pang' , shattered expectations with its quirky angle on pop, an avant-pop sound bathed in razor sharp production and slick songwriting. Since, Polachek has refused to slow down, most notably collaborating with UK avant-pop counterpart Charli XCX, among a myriad of other contemporary talents.
