Well, this confirms it: Annie just doesn't have it in her to make a bad record. It's hard to imagine a fuller 180 from "MASSEDUCTION" than the warm hues and analog textures of Daddy's Home, and while the record might sound looser than its predecessors, make no mistake, our dom queen (now Daddy) is still in complete control, just the way she likes it.

There are very few times where I disagree with you, but your two reviews today are just so spot on and so succinct. I really love reading your commentary!

Question for my first community sourced AOTY list: What's a great album that you can't listen to anymore, and what's the reason?
