Great pick. Still shocked it’s only a bubbler. Definitely one of my faves of last year.

It is unbelievable to me that that album wasn't more acclaimed. It's so accessible, diverse in style and it just sounds like an album that would be highly acclaimed. Critics really whiffed on 2017; my two favorites (Kelly Lee Owens and Jane Weaver) were mostly snubbed too. Hopefully this + the end of decades polls will right the ship for Wolf Alice.
