Final Thoughts:

Ho lee sheeeeeeeeeet. This album is absolutely incredible. Yet another great find through the youtube series “What’s In My Bag”.  I think the most impressive part of this album lies in its simplicity; it’s mostly just Julien and a piano. Her lyrics are absolutely incredible, and Go Home’s ending on the album with a muffled pastor preaching about Jesus over the melancholy piano, amazing.
