truer to her original vision for 'all mirrors', this stripped back “reflection” of that album captures a gorgeously raw simplicity of bruising voice, rugged electric guitar, and little else.

At least nine of the eleven songs should sound familiar to anyone who has heard Olsen’s grand 2019 masterpiece. But these are not the demos for 'All Mirrors'. this is its own record with its own immovable mood, with Olsen working through her open wounds and raw nerves with just a few guitars and some microphones, isolated in a century-old church in the Pacific Northwest. “Angel Olsen grapples with emotions of staggering power – showcased with exquisitely tense vocals and rolling rhythm guitar in ‘(We Are All Mirrors)’ – but the intimacy with which we share in her struggles, confessions and absolutions makes this album compulsively engaging” 9/10 – loud & quiet.
