This album is a profoundly important document of pain, sadness and loneliness. Anohni's vocals are the centerpiece of this album but her voice is bolstered by rich, yet sparse instrumentation. These songs are exceptionally beautiful because at their core, they are so honest and so human.

Fairly uninspiring

Beautiful piece of music here. The vocals and lyricism are exceptional. While listening, I had trouble pinpointing a sole genre that this album would fit into. The genre listed here is chamber pop, but it just sounds like some romantic drama-esque music. I don't know how to really explain it. It's just really eccentric and beautiful...

The sound of pure loneliness; a haunting album

Absolutely beautiful, Antony's voice is really stunning with a solid songwriting's work. I especially love the cover !
Emotion, identity research, love, dark ... this album is dense.
