    Yep. That's kind of the perfect summation.

    It's a step back from The Haunted Man, which I adored. But still pleasant enough? (faint praise, I know...)

    I think this is her best album by far. It sounds to me like PJ Harvey circa To Bring You My Love crossed with Lana Del Rey - all gauzy cinema, skittering manic beats and basslines, and ethereal washes of arpeggio and strings. I don't really mind that the lyrics are horrible, because Khan's lyrics have always been disastrously bad (I'll take any of these lyrics over the plethora of cliched emeralds and suns and diamonds and crystals on Two Suns, or the "money/honey" rhyming dictionary-tier lines on Fur and Gold). Songs like "Clouds", "Joe's Dream" and "Sunday Love" are the best she's ever done IMO. She's finally managed to give her atmospheric pieces some momentum and energy, which was missing on The Haunted Man.

    You go, Natasha Khan.

    Bat for Lashes has always been hit or miss for me. So far she hasn't released an album I ever want to listen to all the way through, this new one included. She's more of a playlist artist in my book.

    What a comeback! Love everything about this song. Already miles ahead of her previous album.

    Wow, Paula Abdul vibes or something!! I, too, like this more than The Bride already. Although that album really grew on me lately when I discovered "Clouds", how did I ever miss that!

    I like it! Maybe not as much as The Haunted Man but I had totally forgotten about The Bride. I'm here for the 80s revival.

    I am really excited for this album! I really enjoyed "Kids in the Dark," was lukewarm on "Feel for You," and am digging "The Hunger." Even "Feel for You" has grown on me!

    ETA: Already light years ahead of The Bride.
