If there's one thing you cannot deny, anything new from Christine & The Queens will always be polished. He constantly delivers beautifully produced and atmospheric music with excellent vocals. But putting those qualities to one side, and at the risk of enraging quite a few people I know, I often find the songs really fucking dull. 'To be honest' lands squarely in that category. Coming across like something that was rejected for the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack for being too gloomy. Where is all the joy? His work is always restrained, but this may just be a step too far.
