CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Consequence of Sound

Asking For Flowers, set a high-water mark, and Voyageur dodges comparisons by presenting the artist’s consistently literate songs in a new light.

musicOMH

In a year of powerhouse female vocalists, Edwards deserves her place near the upper ranks with Voyageur.

70
Drowned in Sound

Whilst Vernon’s production does add a glossy sheen, Edwards’ captivating character is ultimately untouched

70
AllMusic

She manages to sing through her torment on Voyageur, in hope that the journey is ultimately redemptive.

67
A.V. Club

The key, though, is finding balance within this sonic shuffle, something Edwards hasn’t done quite yet.

64
Pitchfork

Here the more intimate focus limits her lyrical range and stunts the album's impact.

60
PopMatters

Voyageur is a serviceable and agreeable record worth taking down a gravel road to.

45
The 405

There’s nothing on Voyageur, aside from the clever lyrics, to distinguish Edwards from the ever crowded field of MOR songwriters.

Purchasing Voyageur from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
