FKA Twigs - MAGDALENE

With 5 stars from NME and a 9.4 from Pitchfork, it looks like FKA Twigs' second studio album will place high on many year-end lists. Considering that FKA Twigs is one of this decade's most critically acclaimed artists, I figured I would make this a topic. On first listen I can say that it's really g...
