☆ ~ Defficient and tedious emptiness. Not my thing.

Minimalist composition but what a voice ! She carries so much emotion, it's crazy.

It's like living in a different world, where you are Julien, and you know what it's like to be a 18 y/o Tennessee out casted girl.

And strangely enough... you already know (what it's like).

Gut wrenching songs from a fragile platform, Sprained Ankle is both moving and soothing. A particularly emotional album full of dark imagery but is never cliche. When you hear Julien sing, the world goes quiet and she has your attention. Instead of taking total charge, she invites you to join her in solidarity. 80/90.

Stunning album, especially considering how young Baker is. She takes a minimalist approach (Ian Cohen is right that these could be demos), and combines it with nuanced but incredibly emotive vocals. Her lyrics are equally powerful, and she strikes a certain chord that can cause you to go through a serious emotional experience, whether or not you've heard it before, and feel much better afterwards.

This album continues to go on me. Baker finds beauty in her simplicity. Her powerful voice shines on this album

Blessed with a SPRAINED ANKLE and a devastated soul, she realizes that her only way out is her music.
Stripped down intimacy that quietly howls for consolation.
