EDITORS’ NOTES

On her sophomore album, Japanese Breakfast's Michelle Zauner seeks grounding in an unlikely place: outer space. Her evocative metaphors and hefty subject matter find lightness in shimmery, spacey electronics, most potently on the expansive, krautrock-like opener "Diving Woman." She deals with femininity and sexuality in synth-pop reveries like "Road Head" and the Auto-Tune-enhanced "Machinist," and cuts deep into trauma ("The Body Is a Blade") and grief ("Till Death") by finding comfort in ‘90s indie guitar pop, fluttering keyboards, and gentle wafts of mournful horns.

Cool👍🏻👍🏻

Very cool album!!! Highly recommended.

The reviewer named "Mojominime" is a complete and utter moron. Leave your politics and stupid opinions that aren't even reviews (nor make any sense whatsoever) out of the review section, how about that!

I like this album a lot.

Ive heard some of their other albums and they were hit or miss for me, but this album has a good all round flow with some variations in genre. Enjoying it a lot while driving as it is mostly relaxing with a few grunge-like moments. I like the direction theyre going and I look forward to the next album. Favorite song on it is 12 steps if anyone reading this is wondering (most likely not =P)
