Angel Olsen has been kind of a weird one for me. For her two previous albums it's been a roughly 50/50 split between some of the most amazing music I've ever heard and songs I just find plain boring. Not bad, just not enough to hold my attention. With this most recent release that has all changed. This is the best she has ever been and I immediately fell in love with the album after my first playthrough and have had various songs stuck in my head this last week or so. I absolutely adore the addition of synths with a more 70s/80s sound to accompany along with the GORGEOUS addition of strings. If you are an Angel Olsen fan at all buy this album ASAP.
