This album sounds of a piece with her past, if a bit more sinister, and it's no worse for that similarity, particularly as she continues to mix in casual lines with sharp expression.

Mitski argues from the very first track "Geyser" to the end of Be the Cowboy that we are meant to be emotional people, although pent-up human emotions are never released as majestically as this electric explosion.

Jeff Rosenstock's POST- is a frustrating, yet important, journey into American society to be sure, but its eventual optimism makes it worth remembering in the current soundtrack of our country trying to make a change.
