It’s a wonderful record, a colossal achievement, and features some of the most breathtaking, moving and downright beautiful music you’ll hear all year.

It has been a joy to see Van Etten growing in confidence as an artist – and this isn’t just her finest album, but one of early 2012’s best.

It is an album full of passion, beauty, talent and fantastic songs.

Tramp is simply her most fully-realized album yet, and that’s all there is to it.

A.V. Club

Tramp is Van Etten’s most confident-sounding album to date, pushing at the boundaries of her music and suggesting a turn away from the romantic wound-licking that has dominated her lyrics.

Pitchfork

Matters of mistrust, isolation, and uncomfortable togetherness dominate Tramp, rolling through every track like a sick, creeping fog.

Tramp is confirmation that Van Etten is a singular talent in the singer-songwriter world, a voice that commands attention through sheer power and the subtle impact of her words.

Under The Radar
Under The Radar

Tramp ups the game on both fronts—her songs have a newfound bravado, and her crushing heartache has become tempered with acceptance and understanding.

indie rock album, great vocals, interesting lyrics, good guitaring but the melodies are not very memorable, the next solo album she released (Are We There) is superior, imo

Infinite beauty, her voice fill every space between your thoughts and you heart, perfect lyrism and strong instrumentation. A perfect album, in every word, in every note, in every second, in avery all.

my favorite album this year

Absolutely phenomenal record. Not only my favorite of the year, but one of my favorite of all time.

this album is ridiculously good, mostly for two reasons. not only 'give out' may be the song of the year, theres also the fact that the lyrics 'you enjoy sucking on dreams so i will fall asleep with someone other than you' from 'serpent' fits, at some point, each and every loving relation between two people
