    The idea of replacing industrial in favour of icy beats seemed to me like a wrong idea. The first listen of Conatus, the third album by Nika Roza Danilova aka Zola Jesus, has corroborated my assumption. Thank God I always listen to a record twice before writing a review! Conatus is stunning, a conscious step ahead in building Danilovaâ

    Conatus continues her roll with more astounding music that sounds better with each listen and during this day and age, what more could you ask for in an album?

    Conatus hits like a miniature hurricane in a box. [#81, p. 60]

    All told, this is a mind-blowing and powerfully emotional album, however you (or she) want to label it. [Nov. 2011, p. 143]
