    "Taiga" is an intimate album that sounds like Zola did for herself. The spirit of this is amazing and pass a deep thrill of nature, power, love and pain... Zola Jesus is amazing!

    Most squarely accessible record to date, and easily the most pop album to come from an alumnus of Sacred Bones. [No. 114, p.61]

    Even if it's not her most intimate work, Taiga allows Nika to be inventive and craft some some stunningly beautiful moments along the way.

    When we’re not soaring we’re wrapped in ambient solemnity, all the while fixated on Nika Danilova’s voice: theatrical, confessional and, perhaps for the first time, totally unafraid.
