O "Titanic Rising" é um ótimo álbum, talvez um dos álbuns mais importantes da década passada. Mas, antes desse grande presente chegar ao mundo, Weyes Blood lançou o perfeito e sofisticado "Front Row Seat to Earth", o seu segundo melhor álbum. Weyes não só aperfeiçoou o jeito como ela faz música, como surpreendeu pela capacidade de fazer o ouvinte ter várias sensações ouvindo ... read more
