Margo Price's first album failed to truly impress me, though I'd like to give it a second look now. With her latest album, she expresses politics -- sometimes subtly, other times overtly -- that I don't agree with. But despite that, this is an all-around excellent album. Wonderful songwriting, delicate and moving production, and a truly lovely voice commanding it all. Bravo!

This one actually has some good grooves on it. First track is solid. "No Fixed Destination" is quite enjoyable. "Haiku From Zero" certainly won't get the kind of love "Zonoscope" and "In Ghost Colours" did, but it seems to be a much more solid offering from ... read more
