EDITORS’ NOTES

Intended as an examination of 21st-century femininity and masculinity, Laura Marling’s sixth album drills into her friendships and relationships with absorbing intimacy. Musically, it’s one of her finest records too. She consistently finds a captivating balance between immediacy, nuance, and adventure—whether she’s plucking cascading acoustic melodies on “Nouel” or creating a suspenseful union of hushed electronic beats, filmic strings and snaking electric guitar on “Don’t Pass Me By.”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Don't need to hear it

I don't need to hear this album. The first time I heard her I was transfixed. She went straight to my soul. I thought it odd that I am very much older than Laura, old enough to be her grandmother, yet her music cannot be denied. Not here anyway. I do not listen to any other music of Laura's peers. Just hers. Dear Laura Marling, you had me at hello. Continue on, Starlight. I am the water beneath your wave.

Solid throughout. Just, just solid.

Nose to tail the entire album is quality. Substantive and no throwaways.

Another gem from Laura

She is a fantastic songwriter and performer. Put on some good headphones and get lost for 40 minutes in her perfectly accentuated voice and storytelling. Every album reaches another climax, she's that good!
