CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

EMA’s work is simultaneously some of the most interesting I’ve heard in years, and jaggedly alive, the furthest thing from any sort of academic exercise.

Pitchfork

Anderson's music has the power to plummet to the depths and drag you right down there with her.

85
Beats Per Minute

Past Life Martyred Saints is an album that captivates, provokes, and pleases.

80
Drowned in Sound

Not easy, but often fascinating, wholly rewarding and genuinely cathartic.

80
Consequence of Sound

The album is a culmination of female vocal power, with Anderson borrowing, recreating, and updating a sound that so many females before her have revolutionized.
