Amazing record. The emotion, the lyrics, the instrumentation, its all so easy to get lost in it. I always loved her first album sprained ankle but with this album she has really shown tremendous growth as an artist in every way. Breathtaking album. This record will more than likely be my favorite release this year. Julien Baker, Thank you.
When I listened to this for the first time, I truly didn't understand how someone could so perfectly convey human affliction or human relationships. I've done it with simple words in novels, much the same language, but Baker somehow managed to convey both her lyrics and the sounds in the same way. I'm not sure your many others feel that way, but it was a very impactful record for me.
great recording. harmonies and melodies start to sound worn out. and she needs a band. no obvious hits on this one as there were on the previous album.
This album makes me feel as though my soul has been ripped from my body, while at the same time, given the greatest hug imaginable! Indescribable talent!
Absolutely incredible. Such an amazing step forward both with lyrics and music content.
Amazing! Such a strong album, just like her first!
