She’s a beast. Doesn’t have one bad song!! Since I’ve started listening to Sigrid a year ago she hasn’t put out a song that wasn’t absolutely amazing.

Great Album!! These new songs (Don’t Feel Like Crying and Sight of You) have been my favorites and if the whole album sounds like this, it will definitely be a great album, but Sigrid is a good singer anyway!!
