    Panorama proves that Kiyoko isn’t limited to any 2018 zeitgeist. There are nods to her older sound, sure, but the matured production and continued experiments show that she’s not out to recreate Expectations – she’s growing from it.

    While ‘PANORAMA’ at times feels repetitive, there’s certainly moments that smoulder with passion, sparkling with Kiyoko’s signature charm.

    The pop genre is in control of Kiyoko rather than the other way around. Instead of defining a unique sound, Panorama carries the unmistakable metallic tang of reverse engineering.
  4. 40
    Where Expectations saw Kiyoko taking space to explore her own voice, Panorama feels like a leap backwards, trading personality for affectless tracks that fade into the background.

    It's just a solid album. I'm so tired of reading reviews from old white cis straight man. Like stop being so petty. She did great job!

    I really enjoyed Expectations and based off of the singles 'For the Girls' and 'Deep in the Woods', I was excited for the album.

    I really enjoyed Expectations and based off of the singles 'For the Girls' and 'Deep in the Woods', I was excited for the album.

    It started off strong as well! I really enjoyed the album until after Flicker Start, where it started to fall apart. She seems to have lost her edge and what made her unique. The production is softer, the lyrics aren't as strong, and I felt let down by the rest of the album until the closer. She has potential, but she seems to have misplaced it for the majority of this project
