    The bravery in hanging out such soiled laundry can't go unnoticed, and it's the album's greatest asset. ... The fact it's wrapped in such a lush indie-pop package only makes it more infatuating. [Apr 2018, p.106]

    Here her vocals are resoundingly clear, and her lyrics are sharp and direct, sometimes to a startling degree.

    The record makes no indelible mark on your day--I imagine this skirting the periphery of most year-end lists, the perennial shut-out waiting flustered at the gates (“I’m sorry, you’re not on the list”)--but it’s detailed enough to add dimensions to the scene Burch sets.

    The leisurely pace of "In Your Dreams" is too soporific, while "Yeah You Know" lacks the punctuation that needs to accompany Burch when she resigns to "go out west a while." Despite this dilution at times, Bruch still burns bright on Quit the Curse.

    Burch has grown immensely as an artist, each song instrumentally richer than the last. Burch's voice is as confident as ever, but more heartbroken than before. ­­­­

    Overall, it's an understated album and that's just plain comfortable to live in.

    Quit the Curse is a mature, confident debut.
