This is an excellent album (based on two listens so far). Thematically coherent with a very strong set of songs. I'm currently particularly taken with Dilettante - or at least the last 50 seconds of it which are stunning while being hauntingly familiar.

The pinnacle of art pop. But then Grimes came and raised the bar once again. But it’s not a race; they both made great music.

I think, Strange mercy, is her best record, at least to date, and this is her strongest set of songs. Of course, she is an artist who could still yet to release her greatest album, but for me, at this moment, this is her best.

Still Annie's best, an album that is both geniunely moving and often beautiful, almost shoegazing it's style which adds to her typically cerebral, oblique guitar-based art rock. It's also the first album that seems less veiled in overworked experiments and esoteric references that occasionally made St Vincent's albums seem too cold or even a bit condescending; it feels more personal, even with her usual abrupt and sometimes brutal tone shifts and use of heavy metaphor, as well as her most self-deprecating. And nothing represents her twin knockout punch of melancholic beauty and can-barely-restrain-the-crazy as the combination of "Champagne Year" and "Dillentate".

I love this record, excellent guitar playing, beautiful vocals, and Annie's most honest and moving lyrics yet.

For me, this is her best record so far. Absolutely stunning stuff. By the way, where's the love for Chloe in the afternoon? That track is fucking brilliant.

I can't say that St. Vincent has worked her way into my head... something about her and her music doesn't connect with me. However, this album is the closest. I find this to be growing on me much more than Actor or St. Vincent.

St. Vincent is the queen of cool, and this is one of her best albums. As a fellow guitarist, I find her unique take on playing to be inspiring and inventive. She takes a common, everyday instrument and morphs it into something completely different. I love this album!
