Sharon Van Etten has returned with what is probably her best record and one of the albums of the year. The singles, "Seventeen" and "Comeback Kid," are both fantastic tracks, somehow bridging the gap between smart 2010s girl-with-guitar indie rock and catchy 1980s radio rock from Springsteen and Benetar. The album as a whole is moodier, angsty, confessional, brutal, and beautiful.
I had never listened to, or heard of, Sharon van Etton, but I decided to give it a shot. I love this album-it takes a few times to grow on you. Some if the songs are pop/rock (Comeback Kid, Seventeen) and others are rathet ethereal. I highly recommend this album
I had never heard of this singer until NPR covered her on a recent podcast. I could not believe it when they dissected the entire album, song by song and i LISTENED......i have really bad ADHD.... but what a GREAT album this is. Every song is a bit different and i totally enjoyed the trip this album took me on. I have not been this excited about a new release in years. LOVE LOVE LOVE
Buy this record!!!!! Remind Me Tomorrow is not only a great entertainment or diversion, but Sharon Van Etten's new album is a great work of art that actually has the possibility to enrich your life via listening. It is full of passion and life itself.
Yes, Remind Me Tomorrow is a return to the artistry of Tramp with all of its moods and mystery. The orchestration works exceedingly well with Sharon Van Etten’s superb heart-felt vocals. I found meaning and profound expression in every word and phrase. The music itself doesn’t backup the artist, rather it’s a dramatic part of the voicing. Don’t be kept from buying the album because of the early single “Comeback Kid” or the album cover. The hit song fits well into the album as a whole, but it doesn’t in any way prepare the listener for the overall work. It’s a real album, not a collection of songs. Nicely done indeed.
