    The collection ebbs and flows steadily, and it’s undeniably sleek in its vintage Americana-style production. Some songs leave the listener gagging for more, as Savior flexes masterful lyrics, effortless style and poise. This is a timeless collection.

    Like Hope Sandoval, Savior's smoky timbre is cucumber-cool rather than over-emotive. [Feb 2020, p.86]

    Savior is a commanding narrator of heartache and revenge, singing of blood and tears over piano and reverb-drenched guitar, demonstrating a star quality that belies her 24 years. [Feb 2020, p.33]

    Her crystalline, sparse voice shines on melancholic but dreamy break-up songs and dark, cinematic tracks. [Feb 2020, p.115]

    As for now, it is one of the best albums of 2020, absolutely. Sounds similar to last year's "Blood" by Kelsey Lu, soft-rock, dream pop. Masterpiece.

    Ever since the first single was released, I've been patiently awaiting this release, despite being new to Alexandra's music and only listeningEver since the first single was released, I've been patiently awaiting this release, despite being new to Alexandra's music and only listening to her previous album after hearing 'Crying All The Time', this album has blown me away and shows a lot of musical growth from her! The tracks are all beautiful, both lyrically as well as production-wise, and her vocala are very soft and captivating. I feel like she is an enchantress and has put a spell on me. The stand-out songs for me were the opening ballad, 'Soft Currents', the very dreamy 'Bad Disease' and the album's titular track, 'The Archer', however I dont think there was a single bad song on this 10 track album. Despite it being only January, I can easily imagine this being one of my top albums of the year, I'm so thoroughly impressed with it! Expand

Great ballads and great psychedelic (?) songs. I've had it on repeat for so long. I love it. "But You" is by far the best song. It's actually one of the best songs I've listened to in a while. And the production in "Saving Grace" and "Howl" are pretty mesmerising. I wish the album was longer. Expand

    Beautiful album! With all due respect, I didn't think she would be better without Alex Turner but she clearly is

    Incredible first half of the album, only problem with the second half is the incredibly stark Lana influence.
