On her fourth album and fourth great evolution, Angel Olsen accompanies an instantly classic outpouring of artistic expression with gothic-synthesizers, some horns, and a colossal assembly of strings. An immense, dramatic, and shattering retrospective on feeling, All Mirrors is massive in both its presentation and statement.
As Angel Olsen proves over the course of her new compilation Phases and many artists before her have, these collections not only are an opportunity for the artist to give insight into the creative process, but also let us hear a batch of songs that might be strong, but may not have fit into the thematic or stylistic arcs of their LPs or EPs.
