  • Summary: Carla Bozulich releases her latest album under the new band name of Evangelista.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 11
  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. The honesty of Bozulich and her band is striking, their creativity voracious.
  2. Bozulich stumbles through a sagging mansion of sound like Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard, which is to say, arch, elegant and utterly used up. But there is power in the decrepitude.
  3. Bozulich has amassed a band and baptized it with the name of her last record, and together they careen through a broken itinerary of radiant darkness.
  4. Its diversity, boldness and overall quality has compelled me to delve into Bozulich's past work with fresh, enthusiastic ears.
  5. Rife with suspense, drama, and a grisly cast of characters, Voyager's probably more likely to ignite your inner playwright than get your foot tapping, but it's still a cathartic rush all the same.
  6. 60
    These impressionistic songs shudder to life under the weight of passive-agressive feedback, anchored by Bouzulich's melodramatic howl and Tara Barnes' menancing bass. [Apr 2008, p.96]
  7. Meh. Patti Smith does it better.

    One of my favorite albums of the year so far. Visceral and cathartic, it goes back and forth between beautiful and intense, and is the farthest thing from predictable music you're going to find. Expand

    This album is my fav of the year so far. If you're not afraid of your own heart and you don't mind being blindfolded and taken for a ride through beautiful, sometimes menacing terrain you will get a real rare treat from this. You will find a peerless voice and musicians who blow the roof off anything else goin' on right now. Good luck wading past the bullshit being spun by people afraid their family jewels will get sucked up inside of them if they admit that powerhouses like Nick Cave and Diamanda Galas have met their match. in fact, add a little Arcade Fire and Animal Collective in there and maybe some Wolf Eyes or something and you pretty much got it.
