“For her debut album Cry Baby, Melanie Martinez slowly but surely solidified a world of colorful music videos to accompany the 13-track LP over more than three-and-a-half years. For her sophomore project, K-12, the singer-songwriter-director unleashed a full-fledged conceptual album that not only uses her years of experience to stick to her artistic guns but also deliver something that becomes all the more artistically and commercially brilliant in 2019.”
­–  FORBES

Martinez, now 24-years-old, uses her juvenile characer of Cry Baby to represent elements of our younger years that carry over into adult life, ranging anywhere from insecurities to drug abuse. Her style is unique, compelling, and down-right impressive for a first time film director. In only seven days, the film and album tracks have stacked up million upon millions of streams. It's obvious that Martinez struck an eerie but beautiful chord with her first album; the second one maintains the same DNA but moves things forward.”

“Melanie Martinez Didn’t Release an Album For 4 Years, But She’s Bigger Than Ever”
- ROLLING STONE

“…a fantastical trip.”
-VARIETY

“Although Martinez has used her ambition to define her career, her raw song craft should not be overlooked or underestimated: at its core, K-12 is an unapologetic discussion of the awkward, euphoric and terrifying experience of growing up. The wildly high mark that Martinez aims to hit is always impressive, but the intelligence and emotion baked into songs like “High School Sweethearts” and “Strawberry Shortcake” should grab the attention of those unaware of her greater narrative.”
