    It sounds – for the first time in a decade – like Clark has slipped out of her high heels and found an equal strength in this barefooted soul.

    It's masterful stuff: a full conceptual realisation, filled with great melodies, deep grooves, colourful characterisations and sonic detail that reveals itself over repeated plays. ... A keeper for the decades to come. [Jun 2021, p.84]

    Daddy’s Home may lack the more exhilarating, guitar-shredding moments of some of Clark’s earlier work, but it’s possibly her best, most considered album to date. Six albums into her career, St Vincent is arguably becoming the defining artist of her generation.

    It does nothing but enhance her reputation.

    It’s a record about growing up, and playing it straight; a more open, rounded experience than we’ve come to expect from St. Vincent, it’s a brave, fascinating record.

    While Daddy's Home may not be her best record, it's a bold and rewarding one.

    Clark and her co-producer, Jack Antonoff, have clearly had fun with the creation of this finely tuned alternate universe, but at a point, its many detailed references start to feel like clutter, preventing the songs from moving too freely in their own ways.

It's Annie herself, learning to deal with all kinds of situations on her own and taking control, even when she'd rather probably let someone else deal with those little difficult periods that everyone has in life. Through the animated sound of the seventies she captures her emotions in a completely new manner. Even though some of the songs contain some very introspective themes she's never talked about before, it all comes out very chill and vibey. Expand

But I loved it so much, especially how psychedelic/bluesy it is. Probably the favourite album I've listened to in 2021 so far. Expand

    A clear tribute and challenge for psychedelia ("Live In The Dream"), Candy Darling (the song of the same title), patriarchal impositions onA clear tribute and challenge for psychedelia ("Live In The Dream"), Candy Darling (the song of the same title), patriarchal impositions on women ("My Baby Wants a Baby") and the social frustration of success ( "... At The Holiday Party"). Annie Clark is back more prepared than ever, bringing with her promising, dreamy and splendid products to enjoy as the world returns to her natural state without COVID-19. The instrumentals are from another orbit, frankly; impeccable harmonizations between Annie, her backup singers and her guitar. BRAVO!

    fav tracks: "Down", "The Laughing Man", "Pay Your Way In Pain", "Somebody Like Me" & "Down And Out Downtown"
    KEY-TRACK: "Daddy's Home"

    St. Vincent has shown that the best is yet to come, however, this is amazing, an instant classic.

    Too dull and disconnected. If it had more catchy melodies, it might have won the aesthetic over. Doesn’t live up to its hype.
