    Weyes Blood’s And In the Darkness, Hearts Aglow is a revelatory baroque pop album forged in these recent chaotic days.

    Magnificently composed, Weyes Blood reaches out to cast your loneliness away. Feeling like a timeless classic, this record is one that you can revisit whenever you want to hear the comforting sounds of another soul trying to figure it all out.

    There’s a little electronic noodling going on to remind us that, though Mering sounds supremely grounded, a part of her is still in exiled orbit around a damaged world. It’s soulful, and a little spooky.

    And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow is a rich, nuanced and brilliant reflection of a world in turmoil.

    Whatever havoc the pandemic may have wreaked on Mering’s already gloomy outlook, it’s done nothing to spoil her melodic facility. And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow gently bombards you with one fantastic tune after another.

    Though rose-colored, its sentiments don’t feel cheap because Mering’s buttery vibrato and earnest vocal performance ably convey the necessity of accepting a lack of assurance about the future while embracing temporary comfort.

    Stunning, healing, hopeful, warm-feelings. A great sequence after titanic rising, Weyes Blood never disappoint.

    I will just say one thing: Natalie Mering is an artist with a very high IQ.

    Beautiful album, but it's held back by the extravagance and perfection of Titanic Rising.
