I respect Chelsea greatly as an artist, and as a fan of much of her work, this has to be the least interesting thing she has done so far. Maybe I just had too high of expectations going into this, but it really never expands past just being a gothic vibe. She has done much more interesting work than this. Check out any of her stuff from 2017 and before instead. This was just really vapid and dissatisfying

YES!!!! This album is exactly what I've been hoping for!

Chelsea Wolfe's latest album has been my most anticipated release for the year so far because I adore her gothic aesthetic that she brings to her music that matches her quiet yet very enchanting voice. Considering I love gothic / atmospheric material like this since it's the perfect opportunity for grounded storytelling, this fits the bill in terms of everything I was wishing for it to be and I'm just so happy.

At the same time, this ... read more

Brief review: Chelsea Wolfe is an artist I've always wanted to like. The thing is though, I never seem able to do so. Her discography and her albums have always been uninteresting and slightly derivative to me, and her eleventh LP is no different. The atmospheres and ideas often provide little intrigue and the tracklist is really inconsistent. Sure, her performances are perfectly adequate, but everything else there seems to be lacking something unique and noteworthy. A shame, because I was ... read more

Goth mommy Chelsea Wolfe walks in for her eleventh, sonically adventurous album, casting her dark spells through pulsating soundscapes of trip-hop and industrial. "She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out To She," a gorgeous title talking of the past self reaching out to the present self, which in turn is seeking growth, and guidance from the future.

From the haunting whispers of the opener, "Whispers in the Echo Chamber," the album immediately establishes its inspirations, with ... read more

Chelsea pulls through and delivers my first 8/10 this year on first listen! This album is a very standard Wolfe release, with the brooding vocals and delicately beautiful instrumentals, and the production is stellar! I was definitely hoping for more of a kick from a new project considering Hiss Spun was a really memorable and fantastic release back in 2017, but I can’t complain. The highlights are House of Self-Undoing, Tunnel Lights, The Liminal and Dusk.

Yes, I have listened to this album many times… and it was like I was looking for something that Chelsea never actually delivered.

First listen of Chelsea Wolfe’s eleventh studio album was really interesting. I had a lot of thoughts and this feeling of excitement that I hadn’t ... read more

NO NUANCE REVIEW

I should really listen to more Chelsea Wolfe albums

As close to a perfectly 'neutral' artist as there is for me - as ever I can respect the atmosphere and craft but the songs don't connect or move me in any way beyond the surface level pleasantness.

Metalheads will rejoice as she's one of the torchbearers of 'accepted non metal music' that they consistently enjoy thanks to those 'dark vibes' and her outsider/goth aesthetic.

This is a good album this is a good album this

Intense, dark and haunting all at the same time. I’ve heard Chelsea Wolf’s name circulate around a good bit but I’ve never checked her out. This new record was a great opportunity to do so because I really enjoyed it. It’s extremelyyyy Nine Inch Nails reminiscent, which I feel like is an obvious comparison but come on. The vibe is super disgusting in the best way possible. The production and instruments feel like they are ... read more

'She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She' is, above all, an album of extraordinary beauty. Musically speaking, it's like a deep dive into Chelsea Wolfe's emotional world, where her ability to capture emotions raw and present shines. The fusion of industrial with experimental music, the touch of art pop, and the evocative voice with gothic undertones create a unique and magnetic musical experience. Throughout the entire listening of this album, I felt enveloped by an invisible layer of ... read more

I love the new spin on her sound as it really fits her style, reminded me of ira by iosonouncane for the dark and menacing but also chill atmosphere, really great!!

Fuck it, this is on the same level as Pain is Beauty and Abyss. She has dived headfirst once again into her darkwave sound and it works in her favor. At only 10 songs, this album is tightly packed and one of the best produced albums of the last few years. Its etherial yet abrasive at the same time. This makes me really happy, well some may feel like it is teying to capture the magic of her past records, to me this is her comfort zone.

This is the first time hearing any music by Chelsea Wolfe and I am not impressed by it but it's ok.

She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She is a Darkwave record that mixes some elements of Industrial Rock and Post-Industrial into something interesting but loses this charm in the second half with no real ideas executed or style that was okay at the first couple of tracks. The vocals are decent but I do not like the production style of this album that much.

Nothing more to say, this is meh ... read more

I will admit, the vocals sound fantastic and at times remind me of Beth Gibbons at her best. But I can't for the life of me bring myself to be interested in some of the instrumentals, most just sound pretty same-y or just plain boring, and some like in The Liminal start off promising but lose me later on in the track. Lyricism also feels very weak overall, most tracks sounding like she's just checking off a list of "haunting sounding lyrics"; correct me if I'm misinterpreting ... read more

7.9/10 - A | This is a very good album!! Chelsea Wolfe showing off some dark, experimental prowess with this new LP!

I could've rated it higher if the track list was a bit more jumpy but the vibe Wolfe is going for here she pulls off exceptionally well.

This is my first time listening to Wolfe & I've only just learnt that this album was a display of experimental sound for Chelsea. Meaning this isn't her usual style of music, and for that you've got to give the girl credit.

it doesn't quite have the brutal despair of Hiss Spun nor the dark intimacy of Birth of Violence, but what it does have is a convergence of complementarity of her various styles. it's a declarative step forward, and her newly gained sobriety has sharpened her artistic vision. this is an amazing album and in my opinion it is now her best.

HELP! I'VE BEEN KIDNAPPED! THEY'RE KEEPING ME AT HELP! I'VE BEEN KIDNAPPED! THEY'RE KEEPING ME AT HELP!

Comprised mostly of hushed vocals, endlessly erie synths, and downtuned guitar riffs, this Chelsea Wolfe album is, in a word: SsppoOokky!! It has that classic late nineties/early 2000s goth sound, that I've always found to be a bit overindulgent, but its used pretty effectively here, so I'm not complaining. The first three tracks; Whispers in the Echo Chamber and House of Self-Undoing start ... read more

Never listened to Chelsea Wolfe until today and that was an incredible experience.
Incredible production, grimy vocals, and the instrumentals are fucking good.
It creates a unique gothic soundscape which I love dearly. Though it feels a little inconsistent its still magical!
Can't wait to check out her other stuff because this is pretty good

dark yet has a good amount of experimentation and industrial elements. Could be more consistent production wise.
