Beautiful

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman

It's less about big hooks than nuanced arrangements, even on the heavily synthesized/programmed songs, and Green's lyrics are as easily relatable as ever, especially on the opening "Beautiful," where she clearheadedly offers advice to an ex.
