Andrew Dickens gives us his thoughts on Amy Shark's album Love Monster.

On first listen this is solid symphonic electronic pop with an edge.  She’s has a memorable voice and a nice range.  But then you realise that many of the lyrics are a bit meh.  Then you hear Jack Antunoff and Joel Little repeating the Lorde production tricks they developed.  That’s when you think a record company has decided to throw cash at Amy to create and Australian Lorde.  So the sentiments lose their authenticity.  Good album not a great one. 6/10
