    Pain Is Beauty not only shows Wolfe’s penchant for atmosphere but for stylistic diversity.

    Bleak, distant, polarizing, and beautiful, Wolfe’s fourth album makes a gargantuan impact.

    for me, its not a completely perfect album. Sometimes the vocals feel a little swallowed up in all the loud, thick layers of sound, making the tracks feel less tidy and clear, but otherwise, the majority of this album is great. And a proof Chelsea is successfully pushing herself forwards in her music. Full Review »

    Inevitably I look back on the good times with Siouxsie and the Banshees. Of course this is not the same, but it's so good if someone makes you think of other great artists. Full Review »
