“…the way she sings the word “emotional.” Climbing it like one of the cliffs she often evokes in her pastoral lyrics, she lets it open up like a vista on its central, circulatory “o.” The word becomes a Valkyrie’s cry, a statement of purpose both sacred and humanly thrilling.”

An overall astute observation of an album produced by one of the most emotionally articulate singers of late, processing the deterioration of her long-term marriage.  Read the review on NPR’s website here.
