    High drama in every molecule. [Jan 2019, p.114]
  2. Uncut

    Simultaneously her most formally experimental and melodically palatable yet. [Jan 2019, p.25]

    At times Soap&Skin recalls Fever Ray, not in sound but in essence: something dark, oblique and stinging lies at the core; both artists combine an emphatic sense of place with molten identity.

    A new buoyancy runs through the album from the sprightly, Eno-esque Italy to the waltz-time drama of Surrounded, and Heal, where the voice of her daughter features. Nonetheless, murk is not far below the surface--in Creep, blossoms are rotting. [Dec 2018, p.92]

    This is ultimately an unremarkable--and frankly forgettable--third album from a notably gifted songwriter.
