ALBUM REVIEW: Weyes Blood Does Magic on ‘Titanic Rising’

A sumptuous album of baroque avant-pop in search of salvation.

Weyes Blood’s latest full-length Titanic Rising is a stunning work of nostalgic melodies, inventive craftsmanship and gorgeous production evoking the golden era of singer-songwriters of the ’60s and ’70s whilst sounding wholly modern and completely timeless.

Potently existential, cosmically mystifying and absolutely glorious in its cinematic extravagance, Titanic Rising is a sumptuous album of baroque avant-pop in search of salvation. Natalie Mering has consistently proven herself to be a remarkable songwriter, and now she has confidently placed herself alongside some of the very best.

Score: 🚢🚢🚢🚢/5
