    This isn’t so much an evolution, but a complete restructuring of Van Etten’s sound. It’s her OK Computer if you want to get frank.

    Throughout Remind Me Tomorrow, she plumbs the depths of contentedness, setting her satisfaction to a sound that's nominally dark yet strangely comforting and nourishing. Even if this album doesn't speak to your specific life, it will nevertheless enrich it.

    The tension between Van Etten’s melodies and Congleton’s sometimes chaotic sonic coloring makes for a bracing listen on the album’s best tracks.

    While the opening moog throbs of ‘No-One’s Easy To Love’ and ‘Comeback Kid’ are initially distracting coming from an artist once known for her sparse compositions, they quickly blend in to become just another part of the atmospheric scenery that add colour to her widescreen laments.

    Her fantastic new album, Remind Me Tomorrow, ups her ambitions even further, pushing toward a grand, smoldering vision of pop that can bring to mind Lana Del Rey and St. Vincent (producer John Congleton has worked with both), and the New Wave warrior-queen spirit of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O.

    The sea change in Sharon’s personal life has given rise to a tidal wave of ambition in her music; that she has harnessed it so masterfully surely confirms her position as one of her generation’s most compelling voices.

    If the music at times fails to convey the particularities of her lyrics on the trip-hoppy "Memorial Day," Van Etten remains an insightful chronicler of small moments that produce overwhelming emotions. [Feb 2019, p.37]

    An incredible album, a natural progression for an amazing artist, Sharon has captured her spirit in this body of work, and it pays off. A must-listen.

    I was really looking forward for this album having listened to the four singles that she released and it was worth the wait. It has everythingI was really looking forward for this album having listened to the four singles that she released and it was worth the wait. It has everything a good album should have, meaning good vocals and lyricism. Some songs are memorable and passionate like Seventeen, Jupiter 4 , I Told You Everything while other songs are just good ( Memorial Kid, Malibu). I personally think that Comeback Kid is going to be an indie classic hit. To conclude, a great album from a great artist. Expand

    Its a good album, I don't think it's as good as a lot of critics are saying it is though. I'm not a fan of an artist revamping their soundIts a good album, I don't think it's as good as a lot of critics are saying it is though. I'm not a fan of an artist revamping their sound with synths b/c that's what's expected of them. SVE has been churning out solid indie rock/folk rock for over a decade, and now that she's added synths people lose their crap.

    On the flip side, "Seventeen" has SOTY potential. One of her most dynamic tracks yet.
