Comments:

What a gorgeous, mournful, powerful album this is. It obsessed me for weeks and weeks with its emotive power, and how it feels like an emotional journey. Every time I play it I get caught up in it. Though she sounds a little like other artists (Bat for Lashes, Torres) her inventiveness is her own. I adore this album. (Neile)

pretty spectacular "dark-folk." A favorite of 2014. (mcurry@io.com)

It makes me feel like a gutted young person again in the best way possible. (timjy@sbcglobal.net)

Comments:

I didn't know how much I needed a new Emma Ruth Rundle disc until this came out. In sound it's very like her two previous albums, but as always the songwriting makes it distinct and dangerously full of emotion. Don't listen to it unless you're ready to get carried into a rich, beautiful, and often aching darkness. This is one of my top albums of 2018. Maybe *the* top. (Neile)
