The prematurely talented 22-year-old dexterously builds tension on her second album, deploying lyrical and structural genius, working her way to catharsis on each track.
The songs get the muscle they deserve. Timefighter pushes a slow-burning blues structure towards a grunge-rock climax, while Next of Kin's noisy, crunchy guitars give weight to Dacus's anti-epiphany; "I am at peace with my death/I can go back to bed."
- Lucy Dacus. Historian. Matador.
