CRITIC REVIEWS

Uncut
Another staggering composition of both darkness and compassion from American vocal acrobat.

AllMusic
Though the subject matter as well as the performance, recording, and presentation is entirely in line with everything Galás has done as an artist since the 1970s, her voice is as strong as it's ever been, and she has lost none of her ability to convey extreme horror while making pointed statements about injustice and the tragedy of the human condition.

Spectrum Culture
How many artists can you think of who enable you to simply feel more sharply and clearly than you did before listening to their work?

Pitchfork
Based upon early 1900s German poetry about sick patients and maimed soldiers, these two side-long tracks of experimental vocalizations highlight the singer’s conceptual, confrontational heft.

Cursed ass music

Dark wave spoken word. Right up my alley. Really haunting and well made.

Seriously one of the most nerve-wracking albums I’ve ever heard… it was such a pain to get through, obv in a good way. Miss Galás once again her qualities in making some of the most dreadful and stomach turning records to date.
