    Musically, it’s lovely – loose, swirling California rock and country, led by gaze-out-the-train-window melodies. ... This album will leave a mark – one that is Moore’s and Moore’s alone.

    Between its warm sonic patina and the personal nature of its material, Silver Landings stands as Moore's most mature work to date, making for a strong if understated comeback.

    Moore has finally grown into the adult voice that sounded so jarring in her teenaged hits like “Candy,” and her songwriting also reveals a sadder, wiser maturity. ... Silver Landings’ best moments arrive when Moore’s explorations veer from her own story to the more universally relatable.

    If Silver Landings isn’t a world-beating collection of songs, it’s a promising return for an artist who is rediscovering her voice, and what she can do with it.

    The whole album kind of sounds like Fleetwood Mac, or at least descended from the same 1970s Los Angeles studios that incubated similarly crisp records by Jackson Browne and The Eagles, glassy marbles of sound with storm clouds of color swirling inside.

    Overall, Silver Landings finds Moore regaining her footing.

    Silver Landings is an intimate portrait of adulthood and a look at life on the other side of achieving fame at a young age. For audiences who grew up listening to artists like Moore, it's an absolute privilege to get to experience this glimpse into who she is now and how she got there.

    Silver Landings shows Moore unburdened and the joy she finds in being honest is both heartening and inspiring.

    70
    By drawing on the sounds of ‘70s singer-songwriters, Moore has successfully completed the transition from her teen-pop origins to adult troubadour.

    Settles on muscular, tasteful adult pop that's often autobiographical. [Mar 2020, p.91]

It’s a breezy, spring day of a listen - with hints of Kacey Musgraves, Fleetwood Mac, and Jason Mraz - with enough pleasant surprises (the subtle sax on the album’s best track “Tryin’ My Best, Los Angeles” being one) to keep the listener engaged while also enjoying the gentle touch of this lovely record. It’s cooking dinner in your kitchen on a summer night music, it’s enjoying a sunset on a lake music, enjoying a ride in the wooded mountains music - it’s joy manifested. Full Review »
