If St. Vincent spent more time working in an independent bookstore, she sound like Mitski.

Not groundbreaking- but who cares when the tunes are this good? Best pop album I've heard so far from 2018.

It's got some absolutely stellar moments and she's obviously incredibly talented. Some of the lyrics are cloying and borderline pretentious with the "look I'm quirky therefore cute" Death cab for cutie vibe.

I always feel like lyrics don't matter unless they distract. So since that's not a huge deal lets talk about the music. The short tracks are very in vogue today but I actually think her ideas would work better if she took more time to flesh them out. There are quite a few duds here, but also quite a few moments where I think "oh there's some good songwriting! oh.. and now it's gone"

I do hear St. Vincent (who is similarly if not more so wont to fly off the rails) but I certainly hear Angel Olsen (IMHO a superior songwriter, maybe not as impressive of a musician) I won't fault her for the uncanny similarities, because she clearly has been around longer and TBH I haven't heard ALL her earlier stuff but I'm just assuming it's similar. Just leaving this here for others who really liked this (which seems to be a ton)

Overall - probably her best album (that I've heard) and it seems just a few tweaks away from having a ton of repeat value for me. I understand that it's really good for some people though.

Wasn't a big fan the first 2 listens, but it's really grown on me a lot now that I'm around 7 in. Maybe my favorite of the year thus far

A voice. Similar in tone to St.Vincent. Works with melody in a remarkable fashion. I prefer the less rocky moments.

Reminds me of St. Vincent, but she hasn't honed all her skills yet. Haunting, spacious, pensive

From Brad1770 08/18/2018 07:15
Mitski's follow up to her 2016's superb break through album 'Puberty 2' takes everything that was great about that album and smashes it out of the park

Read my lips: 'Be The Cowboy ' is one of 2018's best albums

The opening salvo of "Geyser" , "Why Didn't You Stop Me? " , "Old Friend" and " A Pearl" is simply breathtaking , with so many cracking tracks to follow: "Me and My Husband" , "Nobody" and the beautiful closer "Two Slow Dancer's" just to name a few

And I love the less is more approach to her song structures on this album: there are 14 tracks here and only 3 exceed 2 minutes 30 seconds

I'll see your Puberty 2 and raise you Be The Cowboy

Pure Mitski Genius

i'll have to admit, this album took me a few spins to actually digest. this is mitski realizing her pop-stardom and taking the best elements from Puberty 2 and creating a brand new aura. excellent record that's sure to rise in score.
