Bout You: 7/10
Better: 6/10
Need Nothing: 6/10

Somewhere in Between: 5/10
Nothing: 6/10
Control: 6/10
Freedom of Falling: 5/10
This album might be more production heavy than her minimalistic EPs, but it still has a lot of great and authentic songwriting and her vocals are as great as ever.
Favorite songs: Need Nothing, Saint, Control and When You're Gone.
