    On this enthralling sophomore effort, Spaltro continues to refine her skill set and approach without sacrificing any of her signature adventurousness or decidedly un-lamb-like power. [No. 118, p.59]

    While most tracks are easy enough to hum along to, laced with warm banjo and pretty keys, it’s the unexpected explosions of warped guitar solos that make Lady Lamb’s softer moments standout--and the album as a whole succeed.

    After is a minor triumph that makes it clear Lady Lamb is going to be around for a while, and may give you new hope for those kids making arty noise in their basement down the block.

    With her lovely, expressive voice, she finds the truths at the core of each song, making this one of the early year’s breakthroughs.

    Her most finely structured and aesthetically poppy songs yet. [Apr - May 2015, p.89]

    An album which starts feeling a bit dense and chewy halfway through.
