Customer Review

on 2 June 2013
I've got all three previous Laura Marling albums, so when this one was released I didn't have any hesitation in buying it. I've not regretted it, and I've really enjoyed seeing Marling's maturation over the course of these four albums (and in only five years). I feel that this is the most accomplished album she's released so far, yet somehow I find her straying further from the more English folk feel of her first two albums, and I'm not sure that I prefer this direction.
My stand-put track is 'Master Hunter', with the frantic feeling folk guitar jangling away, and the lyrical nods to Bob Dylan. Although it does seem a tad sacrilegious in choosing a track as the album as a whole is really what's so impressive. The first four tracks seem as one, and although it's a long album, at just over an hour, it does all flow effortlessly into a single long track. This is surely the best sign of Marling's growing musical capability and maturity.
Although this isn't my favourite Marling album to listen to, I really appreciate the album as a whole. I'm sure that this album will get better and better with subsequent listens, although I doubt it'll grace my speakers as much as Alas I Cannot Swim. But it's still a great album by one of my favourite artists around just now.
