| ||It is her third album. "These Are the Armies of the Ty(rannized)"? Did you even buy the album? Well, even if you downloaded, please figure out the correct track title even if it is as long as this particular one.
Personally, I think this is the best album of the year. While I realize that practically no one will agree with me, I really have to recognize the album's ability to surprise and move me. Few musicians can still do that. King expands her repertoire, perhaps for the wrong reasons (as she despised being labeled a "tapping girl"), but I really cannot find a flaw with the album other than her lyrical ability. That is not why I buy a Kaki King record, though, and it probably never will be. She creates beautiful music whether entirely by herself or with a band. Don't be so hung up on her "wit" as a lyricist. Too many people think the lyrics are more important than the music produced. They are important but not essential. I think this is a decent review whether I agree with it or not, but I know this album is better than a C+|
