These 15 tracks clock in at 90 min's and there is a lot to take in , the tracks need to be listened to and absorbed multiple times to appreciate their inner beauty

Lush , emotional and grand 'Aviary' rewards the listener who fully commits to its charms

In the same vein of Shaking the Habitual or Crack-Up, this is Julia Holter's densest, most impenetrable album yet. But the reward for diving in and succumbing is great: some of the most absurdly lush, wide-screen music I've ever heard, and it boasts Holter at her inscrutable, passionate best.

From antiquusxy 11/17/2018 13:08
An ambitious and tremendous art pop record that functions as a voyage to medieval times, complete with latin lyrics and 13th century references. Julia Holter's lyrics (which are mostly English, by the way) flirt with the abstract but the emotions they give off coupled with Holter's excellent, off-kilter delivery feel grounded and real. "Aviary" is not afraid to take its sweet time to build a gorgeous world far away from ours, it's simply one of the best records of the year.

Couldn't get on board with this. Some days I would be impressed with the diversity but today it seemed like try-hard eclecticism.

Brilliant, beautiful and hauntingly atmospheric. Quite possibly her best record and my personal favourite album of 2018. Totally unique and absolutely essential. Hooray, all is not lost in modern music!

Yeah LullabyPuppet, 'cos double albums are the new single albums ; ) Plus, Julia Holter is getting into the habit of making music that sounds like the best I've ever heard. Three listens in and I'm already smitten with this one.

Does this album warrant its length? I think it might.
Early favorites: I shall love 2, chaitius, another dream, why sad song
