Album Review Rex Orange County - WHO CARES?3-5 Stars
It delicately posits escapism as a human need, not a choice.
Versed and tenured in the far-reaching grasp of gooey pop, Rex Orange County returns to past collaborators to produce a beaming radio-worthy record that builds on his candid chatterbox delivery, painting a portrait of a more seasoned and shrewd artist. Pairing with Benny Sings (they previously worked together on 2017’s breakout ‘Loving Is Easy’), the record conflates Benny’s modest production (recorded in his Amsterdam home) with Rex’s distinctive soothing vocals, sidestepping his token plucked guitar backbone in favour of more synth-driven and orchestral melodies.
