CRITIC REVIEWS

musicOMH

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

90
Drowned in Sound

And jolly spectacular it is too, which is never a guarantee

Consequence of Sound

90
Beats Per Minute

These tracks are sparse but airtight, haunting but unrelentingly gorgeous

85
Pitchfork

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.

80
No Ripcord

If every song here had been of the same standard as the opening suite of three, and the final two, 50 Words For Snow would have been an all-time classic

75
A.V. Club

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.
