An unstoppable force of nature rolls out her enormously ambitious vision: Tahliah Barnett's been to tabloid hell and back and experienced gruelling ill-health, all of which is explored on her huge, panoramic second album (NME).
MAGDALENE pulls back the curtain on Tahliah Barnett the person, or at least as much of her as she wants us to see, and that curtain is florid and opulent, frequently unsparingly beautiful. It’s hard to overstate just how pretty of an album MAGDALENE is. There are popping string arrangements, samples of church choirs, great big heaving breaths. Alongside a handful of outside producers, among them Nicolas Jaar and Arca, Twigs constructed sound designs worthy of Renaissance architecture. (stereogum)
