Reviewed 2022-06-06
Sharon Van Etten has always been the kind of artist who helps people make sense of the world around them, and her sixth album, We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong, concerns itself with how we feel, mourn, and reclaim our agency when we think the world - or at least, our world - might be falling apart. For the rollout of Sharon Van Etten’s sixth studio album, We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong , the singer-songwriter opted to not share any songs as advanced singles; instead, the album is intended to be listened to in order, all at once, assuring the transformative journey that she herself took in making the record.

1.Darkness Fades 04:33 - Classic Van Etten, expanding from acoustic guitar to an enveloping arrangement of bass, drums, synths and percussion that frames her voice.
2.Home to Me 03:38 - Wash of keys and strings that burst into a cinematic booming piano.
3.I'll Try 03:07 - Pleasant synth line and jaunty beat.
4.Anything 02:38 - Distinctive guitar strumming which are soon overtaken by booming drums and vocals that ring out as she wrestles with feeling powerless.
5.Born 05:02 - A slow burn track enough to conjure tears, a climactic waterfall of synths and strings.
6.Headspace 04:26 - A restless, rumbling bassline prowls through a thicket of grinding synths.
7.Come Back 04:29 - Twinkling dawn chorus and susurrous tideswell that stretches this great track.
8.Darkish 04:04 - A lo-fi diamond in the rough. Van Etten takes her voice as high as will go in places while gently strumming an acoustic guitar.
9.Mistakes 03:59 - Noisy edge to a catchier place, recalling the grimy yet danceable punk/pop of MTV’s salad days.
10.Far Away 03:19 - Prettiest vocals and melody, the reverby guitar and ‘80’s bass accents take it to an almost Cocteau Twins level.
