Everything might be as distant as the stars. But Nick Cave, on Ghosteen, makes empathy and elegy seem so near and touchable.

Del Rey and her noble Norman Rockwell-ian fantasies have moved past their original dreaminess and onto something harder and more real. Brava.

MAGDALENE dances along without ever dipping into easy catharsis, consumed with pain but unwavering in its determination to fight through it.
