    The album, while nowhere near the commercial sound of her first album is still fantastic. To be fully honest, it is a bit of a let down considering this is what was produced after a 4 year wait. Some parts of the album kind of run together and sound the same but other than those two flaws, the album is fantastic. The way she crafts her music makes you want to get up and dance, even on the ballad, and the best track on the album, "Cellophane". I think that people who fell in love with her first album will need some convincing to love this one but it isn't a far reach. Ladyhawke is still in there, it's just a more mature and less commercial sound. Expand

    This album sounds fresh. It's definitely a stand out in these times of almost no guitars in pop music. I think the contrast between loud instrumentals and calm vocals is a lovely thing to hear.

  1. There's nothing on Anxiety so arrestingly new or comfortably familiar.

    The result is a buzzsaw-sharp pop-rock album, full of hard-charging hooks, with one foot toe-tapping in 1978 and the other planted firmly in 2012.

    [Anxiety] retains all the best things about her debut while expanding on both her sound and style.
