I get the impression she’s always believed (or, at least, read) her own press. Problem: she finally made an album not at all worthy of past rave reviews. The lyrics are labored, the vocal tics affected and the arrangements fussy.

A major disappointment, considering Extraordinary Machine was comprehensively wonderful.
