Sweeping and heart-tugging.
This is a wonderful, impassioned record with some of the strongest singles of 2016. Perplexed how it has been called "difficult" by quite a few. Obviously it is a sharp right turn after the baroque balladry of the past, which I always found hard to take in large doses. The experimental credentials of Anohni's collaborators here have been absorbed in the name of sweeping orchestral, heart-tugging electronic pop with a fierce conscience. Personally, I'd call it her MOST commercial work to date.
