Her album came out to rave reviews, select quotes below:

  • “... the full-length finds Lovato applying her still-dazzling voice to an examination of her current state, exploring, love, loneliness, sobriety and peace with a soulful pop filter; it’s a towering achievement that blends high drama (‘Anyone,' ‘Good Place’) with righteous fun (‘My Girlfriends Are My Boyfriend’ with Saweetie) to present where Lovato is today.” – Billboard
  • “’The Art of Starting Over’ begins this part of the record on a high note with a breezy and confident groove that brings to mind Fleetwood Mac.” – The Wall Street Journal
  • “the new album is achingly beautiful in its specificity” – USA Today
  • “Powerful, purposeful and uncompromising, this is her definitive artistic statement to date. Demi Lovato is done pretending, and it really suits her.” - NME
  • “This is easily the best Demi album, and maybe the best of the young year’s pop crop thus far.”- Vulture
  • “Abandoning the old, safe, controlled narrative has worked wonders, but it’s the exploration that makes Starting Over great.” - Vulture
  • “... the new album Dancing With the Devil... The Art of Starting Over presents a hard reset for Lovato so profound that it feels like we’ve met a new person.” - Vulture
  • “With a voice as big as the sky, it’s hard to figure out where to go first — but that’s not going to stop Demi Lovato from trying. It never has.” – Consequence of Sound
  • “Lovato, much like the record, is most powerful when she puts her extraordinary vocals front and center. Her belt is acrobatic, allowing her to bounce between genres with ease” – Consequence of Sound
  • “The title track... is one of the most honest songs she's released in her career” – Elite Daily
  • "Demi Lovato's morality fable on modern celebrity impresses" – The Times UK
