    Familiar is brilliant! I love some of her past stuff, but this beats it all. Excited to hear the album!

    Another song from 'Citizen Of Glass' has been released, titled 'Golden Green'.
    And it's fucking amazing.

    I 've had Aventine on repeat for a year now, it's so ghostly and sinister, yet ethereal, I love it. Can't wait for the next record to be released, I'll play it on all hallows eve!

    I still can't find it anywhere I can't wait, I'm sure I will like it. Golden green and familiar are lovely.

    I had it on repeat yesterday the whole evening and I just love it!
    To me it is more mesmerizing than the two before (that I also like very much), more haunted.
    Some songs and melodies are just pure beauty (citizen of glass and mary, for example).
    She said she has written the album with the concept of the title ("der gläserne Bürger") in mind and it feels more cohesive to me than her previous albums.
    I will see and hear her in Düsseldorf next saturday: she plays in a church

    Oh so jealous! Let us know how the show is!

    I've had the record on repeat all weekend; it's simply perfect, well-paced, well-executed, gorgeous.

    Holy crap, this album is good. From start to finish. I'm in awe of her. "Familiar" has me head over heals in love. Possibly the most gorgeous song I've heard in years. I find myself craving it!

    YES I love Familiar! Trojan Horses and Mary are also tops, though honestly it's hard to pick favorites.

    I love this album. I loved her first record, but Aventine didn't hit me the same way. This may be better than the first one.
