While there are certainly some interesting ideas introduced in this album, Barnett's lack of emotional range pulls everything down.

Great rock chick riffing and smack as fuck lyrics, yo. Rivals her best work!

The songwriting is a little more direct, a little more spare on the wry, everyday details that made her first record such a total delight, but Courtney Barnett and her band's talent is still well evident here - the deceivingly jaunty 'Nameless Faceless' is an absolutely crushing, impassioned rally-cry for the rights of women to simply walk through the park at night. those little glimpses Barnett provides into depressingly everyday fears are sharp and tragic. The strength of a lot of these songs makes up for a somewhat difficult second album.

Definitely not as immediate as her first one, but the songwriting is pretty solid. She's got a great ear for a hook, and lyrically this is introspective and sober for the most part. The production brings the songs to the foreground, which feels appropriate. It'll be interesting to see if Courtney expands her musical palette next time.

I like the album. As a stand alone piece of music its a good deadpan indie rock record. But as a follow up to Sometimes I Sit & Think.. I just see no growth. Which I won't necessarily hold against her, since its not a bad sounding album either way and an artist doesn't always need to find a new sound with every album. Its just less exciting and doesn't really invoke many emotions in me.
I hope the fans don't abandon her and stick around for the next release.

Australia's own Courtney Barnett went from playing pubs to world consciousness and Ellen appearances within a few months following 2015's commercial and critical smash 'Sometimes I Sit and Think....' . So the follow up was always going to be interesting

I can split the album into 2 parts: tracks 1 to 6 are rather excellent with "Hopefulness" opening things perfectly as it builds to a crescendo , "City Looks Pretty" and its catchy hooks , "Charity" , single "Need A Little Time" , "Nameless , Faceless" and the Riot Grrl inspired rocker "I'm Not Your Mother... "

However things close on a flat note with the final 4 tracks and especially closer "Sunday Roast " which TBH keeps the worst for last unfortunately

Fortunately there is enough class in the front half of this album to give it a pass

This one's darker in tone than previous releases. I don't know if that suits her well. There is a lack of big songs compared to Sometimes I Sit...

I am really liking this the first couple listens in. I can hear Summerteeth era Wilco in a few of the songs, and the outros as well are Jeff Tweedy in style. Great guitar here.
