    A strong contender for album of the year. ... Titanic Rising is remarkable for its breadth, effortlessly shifting from the 90-second ambient wash of the title track to Picture Me Better’s homespun take on the cosmic cowboyisms of Kacey Musgraves. Then there are Merings’ lyrics, evincing a similar shift in scale and scope.

    Titanic Rising is a new thing, her own stamp on the world. Like all the best musicians and songwriters before her, she’s plumbed the depths of her imagination and brought forth a masterpiece from the depths.

    In emotional terms Titanic Rising is immense – names like Annette Peacock, Linda Perhacs and Judee Sill come to mind, but only because it feels like so long since you’ve heard pop this epic yet unmannered. ... With tracks like the stunning “Something To Believe” lodging themselves into your heart with the sure knowledge that your relationship with this music will only deepen as the year unfolds.

    An ambitious, varied and ardently rewarding listen, Titanic Rising is pop music for ages and worlds far beyond our own, and an emphatic show of prowess from one who is sure to be one of indie’s new radiant lights.

    Mixing warm, New Age-suggestive electronic tones with conversational, heart-to-heart lyrics meant to stick on first listen, her work floats through space with a glistening, emotionally rich shimmer.

    Titanic Rising presents an immensely elegant journey to a different place and time; in equal parts beautifully delicate and powerful.

    Perfeito. Movies é provavelmente uma das melhores músicas lançadas em um bom tempo, inclusive.

    Yeah this is definitely my favorite pop (more like psychedelic pop) album I've heard since 2017 Melodrama. That's all I can say. Weyes Blood (Yeah this is definitely my favorite pop (more like psychedelic pop) album I've heard since 2017 Melodrama. That's all I can say. Weyes Blood ( btw that's such a cool name) is spot on when it comes to transporting a person to heaven using her music . Heavenly Bliss is what it is and I'm not exaggerating. It makes everything else I've heard from other dream-pop/ and psych-pop artists seem a little recycled. Movies is probably the last song i'll listen to before I die. **** Terrific!!!!!!!!!!!! Expand

Titanic Rising takes us on an amazing musical journey with vocals and a production as wonderful as the invasion of aliens into the world that leads to the destruction of humanity. This album seems to be perfect and should be considered as a serious candidate for the album of the year. Expand

    Beautiful album but I can see how some people might listen to this and think it's boring. Movies is an excellent and stand out track but onBeautiful album but I can see how some people might listen to this and think it's boring. Movies is an excellent and stand out track but on first listen it didn't get me till the second half of the song kicked in. In my opinion the orchestration and her voice carries the album in that order. Everyday is probably the closest to an upbeat song on the album and I would recommend to the casual listener. I'd like to hear Movies in a movie some day. Expand
