    It's the work of an artist at the absolute top of her game, and as a result, Herein Wild ranks as one of the best, most inspired and inspiring, albums of 2013.

    For the time being, Herein Wild skies above us and we owe it to ourselves to try and give it a reach and let us take it wherever it wants to take us.

    It's stylistically close to 2012's excellent Interstellar, but on this form, too much of a good thing just isn't possible. [Dec 2013, p.112]

    Herein Wild is a nice record, skillfully executed, but it's essentially the aural equivalent of living in a padded cell: so soft and secure you find yourself yearning for some harsh everyday reality. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.94]

    It might be subject to less scrutiny had it not followed Interstellar, but then again, it might not be subject to scrutiny at all, and simply filed away with any other competent and unexceptional dream-pop.

    In the grand scheme of things this is not epochal work. In the world of rock ā€˜nā€™ roll this is to the Rolling Stones or Bruce Springsteen as Chausson or Bridge were to Wagner or Mahler. But those lighter composers had their charms and pleasures, and with Herein Wild so does Frankie Rose.

    Those pop songs, [not the ones on Herein Wild,] confess everything and never apologize. Herein Wild just disappears.
