EDITORS’ NOTES

Mary Lambert’s first recording as an indie maverick is a quietly confident statement of liberation: an impassioned collection of vibrant, melodic pop shot through with bracingly honest moments of reflection. Lambert’s bourbon-and-honey vocals shimmer through the piano-led opener “Do Anything,” a breakup song about professional integrity; they melt around her mother’s tender harmonies on the earnest “Love Is Love,” a ballad destined to become a first-dance staple at LGBTQ weddings.
