Christina Aguilera's latest album Lotus hit retailers yesterday (November 13), facing stiff competition from several other high-profile releases — and while Your Body has continued to plateau on the charts, anticipation was still running high for Legendtina's big comeback. But were critics ready for Aguilera's blooming Lotus? Well — sort of.
Overall reception has been fairly mixed, with most reviewers awarding the album a middling score and noting that while there are strengths, it suffers from pathological oversinging and production overkill that makes it feel mediocre as a whole. But nobody’s arguing that her voice is still one of the best in the game, and everyone agrees that Lotus is a modern pop record that (probably) improves upon the chaos of Bionic. Read the best quotes from the critics after the jump.
