Wilde uses conventionality in composition and lyricism (either intentionally or unintentionally) in order to maximize what she gets out of every note and every word written. The fact that the elements of the songs proceed in compliance with our expectations means that the songs have no duty to subvert our expectations. Thus the atmosphere of the songs are a direct consequence of a lyrical and musical uniformity that directly feeds the listener with something familiar. A layered yet straight-forwardly written album that benefits from its simple nature.
7/10 – Good
