  1. 9.3 |   Earbuddy

    She sounds powerful in these songs, not scared to let her voice rise above everything going on. It makes the song’s otherwise simple melodies land with epic effect

  2. 9.1 |   A.V. Club

    It’s all hazily fascinating, flowing naturally through its various peaks and valleys, and it succeeds in Scott’s goal of being truly immersive listening—something that reveals itself to you in strange new ways each time you return

  6. 8.0 |   Pitchfork

  9. 6.5 |   Under The Radar

  11. 6.0 |   Mojo

    There is a lot of awkwardness around the third album from Mackenzie Scott. Print edition only
