I was doubtful but Tamara managed to do it.

While I believed The Weather Station was on a ride down a steady decline, the band did exactly what I was fearful they wouldn't be able to do. They conjured a luxurious art-pop record including so many natural facets and performed it so effortlessly. While their more folk centric work isn't too polar from art-pop, it definitely possesses a different creative outlook. A record sounding so organic in composition, the sloppiness of instrumentation only ... read more

I’m a little late, but I’ll review this anyway.

I have noticed that this album has been a bit polarizing with the main complaints being that it sounds like a generic indie album and that the songs sound similar. However, I loved this. The album reminds me of the works of Fiona Apple and Florence + the Machine. I love Tamara Lindeman’s vocals and the arrangements and production are well done. The part of the album I appreciated the most was the lyrics about climate change. ... read more

This is quality art pop. With a very cohesive and back-to-back fun album The Weather Station made space feels embracing and touching. The instrumentals are all so nice, her voice is deep but also quite soft which is ear pleasing at most. The sophistication is palatable and it's also curated, I got every sequence and every abruption as a form of expanding creativity.
In some parts of this record I remembered our dearest Fiona Apple for a while and some other artists as well, but that's not ... read more

"If you won’t look out the window onto the sea
If you can’t carry your pain, you will lay it on me"

The Weather Station prognose us with a little bit of a sleepy rain, a little bit of beautiful sunny day and some snow here and there.

"Ignorance" is a really nice, calm album that portrays a loving, warm & honest experience, filled with some beautiful songwriting and touching vocals. Usually, everytime i see the "sophisti-pop" tag i kinda get scared ... read more

god my original review sucked so that’s getting deleted. congrats nico you now have the top review.
ok now on to the review.
this album starts off fantastic with robbers and atlantic. both tracks are beautiful art pop songs. the vocals throughout the entire album are incredible but they really shine on the first two tracks. tried to tell you is also pretty good but it is far from great. but, from that point on, the album just becomes mediocre in my opinion. like, there aren’t any ... read more

O que torna uma banda rentável diante dos seus trabalhos é - entre outras coisas - a dedicação e a forma da qual os artistas envolvidos buscam representar a sua arte. 'Ignorance' do The Weather Station surge entre a sutileza dos detalhes e o capricho da atmosfera muito bem construída e arranjada por melodias e vocais requintados que se perdem nas dimensões abertas pelos autores de uma obra tão fascinante e devidamente bem desenvolvida.

From a vocal, lyrical and production standpoint The Weather Station get a lot correct on 'Ignorance' and while I like a lot of the sophisti-pop material this album offers, it ultimately doesn't have that extra push to make it great or stand out. It's a pretty good album on its own don't get me wrong but it's nothing that special and I'll probably have forgotten about it in a few weeks.

I expect this score to go up, I’ve taken much of the last 4 days letting each song grow on me. The lyrics are dense and fascinating and I feel like every song requires a personalized relationship, I have no idea whether this will ultimately feel a bit disappointing once I’ve come to fully know it, or if it will be an all time favorite, but I’d say an eventual score anywhere between 80 and a 100 is possible.

It's not bad, but Pitchfork definitely gave this a pretty head scratching score. If every track were as good as Tried to Tell You, then maybe we'd have something special on our hands. But, as is, there's a good bit of emotional depth to the writing and I do enjoy her voice. I wish the production had a bit more bite to it overall but the use of various instrumentation does make this stand out in the indie rock scene at least a little. Soooo good but slightly disappointed? To no fault of the ... read more

Kings of Convenience once said that quiet is the new loud. Well, this album is the embodiment of such expression. What a marvellous, refined and complex piece of music!

I was really looking forward to this after "Robber" and I'm glad it didn't disappoint. Great production, vocals and writing in general on this. I love the jazz elements in the earlier tracks and the lyrics are great and well thought out.

Canadian indie folk band “The Weather Station”, kill on their newest release, “Ignorance”.

“Ignorance” combines genres like Chamber Pop, Indie Folk and Art Pop. The lead singer, Tamara Lindmans vocals are very expressive, while being delicate on this album reminding me of Joni Mitchell a little bit. On “Ignorance”, the instrumentals are very passionate, lush and superb with its pianos and strings and the production being beautiful and ravish all ... read more

Gorgeous arrangements with a gentle voice from Tamara Lindeman accompanying them. A sweet and easy listen that doesn't overstay its welcome, getting exactly to the root of all of it.

This is really solid but it goes on a bit. By the last 3 songs I was kind of over it. Some moments that were reminiscent of Joni Mitchell (both in delivery and tune) which were nice.

There are so many things I admire about this album. The aspects of Ignorance give it an extraordinary atmosphere. Although the vocal performance may not be the strongest you are going to hear, it is not the most important aspect of this album by far. There is much more to appreciate, especially the album's instrumentals and lyrics.

I didn't know The Weather Station up to the point they released this album, but as I am craving for new music so much, I decided to listen to their new album, ... read more

So far I’m scratching my head with the near universal praise this is getting. It’s not bad, but I was hoping to be knocked over by it. Need more time to score.

6.4/10

"Ignorance" takes off very promising, with the exciting atmosphere and creative musical arrangement on "Robber", but further into the record it all starts to lose this kind of density, and the rest of the album is just not as great and distinctive as it could've been.

I totally didn't expect it. Amazing lyrics, sweet but bitter arrangements, haunting vocals; and now I don't believe in the robber too.

She's got me dancing around my kitchen one second, and then the next I'm crying in my bedroom. The songwriting on here is fantastic - Subdivisions is masterclass of storytelling. Her vocals are so soothing as well. I want more!!!!

"Ignorance is a curious and striking title. It is a short and usual word, but here it seems to transcend its meaning. And in fact, it does that. When Tamara chose this title she was thinking of the good meaning, the one related to naive ignorance and not that intentional one. The opener, “Robber,” manages to show this perfectly. The challenging track with jazz influences prolongs its introduction by one minute. In that time, the instruments are introduced, but at no time does ... read more

Tamara Lindeman's new album, Ignorance, is lush, dramatic, and on the pulse of the decade's early critical trends. She makes female-led rock music with roots in singer-songwriter/folk far more than in the history of rock or punk. She sounds right at home with other contemporary artists (Phoebe, Angel, etc.) who are reinvigorating 'indie' rock with brighter production, an ear for pop melodies, and polished arrangements. Lindeman pairs this sonic landscape with lyrics that attempt to process her ... read more

I don’t have much to say about this, to be honest. Starts off really great but gets repetitive after a certain point. Songwriting is really good but the vocals are quite boring. Production is classy and sweet to the ears.
