It’s absorbing and enchanting without having to resort to formulaic song structures, pop thrills or radio-friendly catchiness.

These tracks are sparse but airtight, haunting but unrelentingly gorgeous

Her best music, this album included, has the effect of putting one in the kind of treasured, child-like space-- not so much innocent as open to imagination-- that never gets old.

While the album is as icy as its title implies, there’s a dormant warmth to 50 Words that compensates for its lack of hooks.
