I don't care what any of y'all say... St. Vincent had the greatest album of 2017. From the gay ballad turned banger that is "Slow Disco" to fan favorite "New York" this album shines. The album isn't her most cohesive but every song is absolutely perfect. (At least is not of those albums so cohesive that every song sounds the exact same) I wouldn't change anything about it and it deserves recognition. The greatest guitarist alive and one of our best songwriters.

The first half is okay, there's not a single bad song, but they're not great either, they're just good. However, the second half is amazing and I think that has some of the best songs she's ever released (New York, Fear the Future, Young Lover and Slow Disco).

the ratings for the songs are so low. How is Pills not an 85+ rated song?

Is this her best? It well could be. Annie Clarke achieves what Arcade Fire were trying to do.

From HoldenM
If this were all instrumentals, this would be one of the best albums of the year, no question. Lyrically though, I'm at a loss. Never has Annie Clark been so heavy-handed. This album has no interest in nuance or wit. Gone are the evocative turns of phrase that made St. Vincent's early work so sly and surprising. Gone is the subtlety. Gone is the patience. And that wouldn't be much of an issue if this record wasn't so overbearing, or if it didn't feel the need to hit every point over the head with a sledgehammer. There are some pretty good songs here--"Hang On Me," "Los Angeles," and "Happy Birthday, Johnny" are solid highlights--but on the whole, I should not be rolling my eyes at a St. Vincent record.

It's not her best but it's another decent addition to one of the best bodies of work in music in the last ten years. Very good, just not quite brilliant.
