    These tunes feel huge, enhanced by a newfound confidence, choirs literal and adhoc, and the snap-bracelet rhyme schemes of pal Aesop Rock. [No. 82, p.54]

    Dawson's melodic palette's improved, but her stories are mostly told.

    She is better than you would expect, flexing a style that exists between Woody Guthrie and Def Jux as she calls out hypocritical hippies, turtle burning oil companies and the overdose that nearly killed her with effortless wit and grace.

    Dawson keeps Thunder Thighs from becoming too precious or intense.

    She never gets quite where she's going, but it's good to have her back.

    The bolstered instrumentation doesn't hide some of her weakest songwriting.
