Amoeba Review

05/06/2016

On her bold new album, Beyonce takes on the image of the wounded lover and owns it while continuing to make heartfelt, intelligent pop music of the highest order. As her previous, self-titled album was a vibrant ode to fidelity, Lemonade represents the other side of relationships. Even the title is kind of a sick joke — it’s what Beyonce makes when life gives her shit. “You can taste the dishonesty, it’s all over your breath,” are the first words she utters on the album, over the stately piano, church organs and echoing vocals of “Pray You Catch Me.” Musically, it’s reined in from the thrilling but all-over-the-map feel of Beyonce, as the album largely consists of wrenching ballads and dark bangers — but these are Beyonce’s strong suits. And the tunes that stretch out a bit further are stunners, from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs-meets-Enya “Hold Up” to the stuttering beats and echoing, Animal Collective-esque vocals of “Sorry.” She melds that newfound interest in indie music with her grounding in soul, gospel and jazz on the album’s middle passage, particularly on tear-jerker “Sandcastles.” Lemonade allows Beyonce to be bitter, sad and laid bare, which helps makes it one of her best albums — at the very least, it’s her most honest one.
