After decades spent setting trends, but never getting their deserved due, beginning with 2016’s Anvil Is Anvil, the band began a run to unmitigated glory, which continued with Pounding the Pavement (2018), Legal At Last (2020), and the band latest effort, Impact is Imminent, released on May 20th, 2022.
I think for me, this currently is my second favorite release from Sharon Van Etten behind Are We There. It could possibly rise up and take the top spot. I like it much more than Remind Me Tomorrow, but now I can see how vital that record and her transformation on it were so that she could get to this point, and deliver this very open, raw piece of work.
