I have been a Katie Crutchfield fan for a long time, all the way back to the days of P.S. Eliot, so it pains me to say this but I find this really underwhelming. you have to go five songs in to "The Eye" before you reach a track that is recognizably hers. most of the album consists of the most benign kind of generic country pop songs that I always took her to be taking a stand against. all the things that she did "wrong" that made her uniquely awkward outsider sound click ... read more

sorry but I am just a sucker for this and can't help but like it. it has all the good qualities that I did not find in, for example, the Porridge Radio album, which I still detest just as much as I detest Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

at this point in their career they have a formula, and it's a good formula, but when you know the formula, then they begin to sound formulaic. they are always good for two or three excellent songs per album and lots of atmosphere. but it's all more pleasant than dreamy, and more drowsy than exciting. the top songs this time are "When It All Comes True", "Swimming Lessons", and the yearning "Every Atom", which is genuinely beautiful.

psych-space-rock power trio delivers a big sound. good balance to the songs and lots of inventive guitar runs. get ready to rock because they are. also, now I have something to go next to Slint in my record collection.

the last three singles "Fortune"\"Walk Soft"\"Fear of Heights" would have been a fine EP but they seem committed to a new "release as you go" method that has both advantages and disadvantages. on the good, we get the music faster. on the bad, in a time when the album is becoming important again they have switched to an emphasis on singles, and their under-the-radar status may become permanent. okay for the fans but let's not be selfish.

Supp! I'm doing a challenge at the moment, the "out of my comfort-zone challenge". This is a challenge where I need to listen projects, I normally wouldn't listen too. After some listen I need to state my opinions in a review. If you would suggest an album to me, it would be great! As long as they aren't metal, hip hop or rap! (experimental/abstract hip hop, weird rap is allowed though)

About
100 = perfect
91-99 = levels of greatness
90 = good stuff
80-89 = worthy of an extended listen
70-79 = good song or two
50-69 = thanks but ...
under 50 = no thanks
I rate high most of the time.

Strong preference for small labels and indies, tend not to rate major label and mainstream stuff unless forced upon me, then look out.
