CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Spin

At no other time in her career has Gordon been so forceful, so in her own power. 

80
AllMusic

Free-flowing, feminine and feminist, these songs are some of the most honest music of Gordon's career. On Coming Apart, she comes into herself.

Tiny Mix Tapes

For the moment, it’s surely a worthwhile project for players and listeners alike, an album of unusual synergy, exploration, and focus that expands both artists’ repertoires well beyond genre constructions to create something both unique and replayable.

77
Pitchfork

The re-imagining is typical of her career, which has featured more detours than she’s perhaps been given credit for. Count Coming Apart as another fascinating step in that journey, and Body/Head’s musical path as one that she and Nace will hopefully follow for a long time.

The approach is bold, the effect even powerful, but the amount of dissonance permeating this album on every level--vocals, guitar work, effects--is staggering. It's difficult to imagine that many could sit through the full-length of the album, much less, I'm afraid, coming back for repeated listens...
