Julien "Queen of Diverse Songwriting" Baker

obviously jk... Julien wrote the same song 10 times, did pretty much nothing interesting with the production, and laid on the cliche heavy-handed metaphors thick. tbh I don't really get why anyone is looking twice unless her background and personal details are really so compelling that writers can't resist lauding the album just for a chance to sell her story. if you want a female singer songwriter who's actually saying something interesting and not just dangling vague love songs over 'atmospheric' (and plain as hell) piano ballads, just check out like waxahatchee or jesca hoop or feist or mitski or for god's sake Lana Del Rey is at least 3x as interesting here and she's playing the same exact game

I AGREE WITH YOU. This is such a tiring cliche from her
