    Love this. Big eighties drums and synthetic, a bit of Siouxsie in the vocals and quite different from her previous material.

    Very much loving this new sound and the Siouxsie vibes. She also looks great on the video, if entirely unhinged.

    I really need to catch this tour.

    one of the albums i'm proper looking forward to. i was obsessed with jupiter 4 for a minute last year - it turned out to have been (electropop-ily) recorded previously by donna missal who cowrote it with her.



    i obviously prefer sharon's creepy, somewhat sarah mclachlan-y and just a little sexual (to these ears anyway) take on it.

    Love the new single. All three songs so far have been excellent.

    So, so good. It's lovely to feel somewhat agonised waiting for a new album again in place of my usual 'I'll have to pencil that in sometime in the next six months' approach to new music.

    The album is very good as expected. The sequencing is interesting with the three outstanding singles together in the middle, but it seems strong top to bottom. No One's Easy To Love feels like another stand out.

    I liked the album on first listen. I think I need to give it a couple more spins to really get into it. A few of the songs passed me by a bit but I like the sound overall

    more artists should do the same. makes it more cohesive for me

    I now love Jupiter 4 and Seventeen. as I've mentioned before, I swear this woman is creating the OST for my destitute 40s

    she did a new version of seventeen with norah jones (of all people) and they give a really great vocal. their voices sound so well together and there's a strange chemistry between them.

    i feel like this album came out too early in the year and it got lost in the shuffle a bit.

    God WHAT AN ALBUM this was, what a woman.
    WHY is she so underrated? She really should be considered with the likes of Fiona Apple and Cat Power as a current-generation great American female songwriter and for some reason she's just NOT.

    Anyway, her staggeringly brilliant Glastonbury set is randomly on iPlayer and it's just SO GOOD. I 10000% recommend a watch. That she starts off playing to a tent that's a third full is just :( THANKFULLY it fills out by the end.
