    i'm going to be blunt and say that this album is boring. It's not that Julia Jacklin doesn't have talent, she does, but the material here is mediocre. Half the album is forgettable and the other half (Don't Know How To Keep Loving You, Body, Pressure To Party, to name the few), you will forget in 3 months. While her writing is honest and introvertedly expressive - which is all fine andi'm going to be blunt and say that this album is boring.

While her writing is honest and introvertedly expressive - which is all fine and well - there is nothing in the music to want to make me listen a second time. No doubt there are those few that will relate to this album but I suspect for the vast majority, this album isn't a compelling enough reason for them to want to give it a try. Expand

    She provokes an emotional groundswell in the quietest of moods, one acoustic song at a time. But the knotty, country rock groove of both Head Alone and You Were Right show that she can also shake off those doldrums. Maybe not as much as we’d like, but as she repeatedly denotes in Crushing, healing is an everyday process.

    One of the most relatable, heartbreakingly specific albums of the year.

    These songs are stamped full of her personality and they mark a major evolution as a songwriter. As the final chords of the heartrending Comfort ring out, it’s impossible not to think that yet another major Antipodean talent has put a new marker down.
