    I'm happy for Tanya that she's feeling content with her married life and motherhood. But I must say it makes for a boring album to listen to. The vocals are mixed so high that I feel just plain uncomfortable with the intimacy of it all. The unvarying acoustic instruments and slow tempo throughout also make the songs hard to get into. I like a little more variety, personally. I'm happy for Tanya that she's feeling content with her married life and motherhood. But I must say it makes for a boring album to listen to.

  1. Most of Whiskey Tango Ghosts suffers from a kind of confessional sluggishness.
  2. 60
    Electric piano and pedal steel-caressed intimacy rules the day, keeping attendant preciousness almost, if not completely, at bay. [Aug 2004, p.99]
  3. 70
    For better or worse, this is love songs for grown-ups. [Aug 2004, p.94]
