    Acquainted With Night is the type of album where there is not much need to dissect individual songs. It’s a complete work best taken in its entirety, with Neale’s ethos stamped all over it. ... Acquainted With Night is not only a reinvention of herself, but the rare scrap of antiquity that becomes the newest thing under the sun.

    For Neale, the grainy imperfections and surreal experiments of Acquainted with Night open her songs up to an unforeseen world of solitary beauty and personality, where the clean, professional sound of earlier work rendered them a little bit anonymous.

    The true spiritual kin to Neal's spectral fragility is Mazzy Star's. [Mar 2021, p.35]

    There is comfort in Neale’s introversion, but you long for her to burst free; for a hint more dynamic texture to fully render her vignettes.
