    A strong contender for album of the year. ... Titanic Rising is remarkable for its breadth, effortlessly shifting from the 90-second ambient wash of the title track to Picture Me Better’s homespun take on the cosmic cowboyisms of Kacey Musgraves. Then there are Merings’ lyrics, evincing a similar shift in scale and scope.

    Titanic Rising is a new thing, her own stamp on the world. Like all the best musicians and songwriters before her, she’s plumbed the depths of her imagination and brought forth a masterpiece from the depths.

    In emotional terms Titanic Rising is immense – names like Annette Peacock, Linda Perhacs and Judee Sill come to mind, but only because it feels like so long since you’ve heard pop this epic yet unmannered. ... With tracks like the stunning “Something To Believe” lodging themselves into your heart with the sure knowledge that your relationship with this music will only deepen as the year unfolds.

    An ambitious, varied and ardently rewarding listen, Titanic Rising is pop music for ages and worlds far beyond our own, and an emphatic show of prowess from one who is sure to be one of indie’s new radiant lights.

    Mixing warm, New Age-suggestive electronic tones with conversational, heart-to-heart lyrics meant to stick on first listen, her work floats through space with a glistening, emotionally rich shimmer.

    Titanic Rising presents an immensely elegant journey to a different place and time; in equal parts beautifully delicate and powerful.

    Yeah this is definitely my favorite pop (more like psychedelic pop) album I've heard since 2017 Melodrama. That's all I can say. Weyes Blood (Yeah this is definitely my favorite pop (more like psychedelic pop) album I've heard since 2017 Melodrama. That's all I can say. Weyes Blood ( btw that's such a cool name) is spot on when it comes to transporting a person to heaven using her music . Heavenly Bliss is what it is and I'm not exaggerating. It makes everything else I've heard from other dream-pop/ and psych-pop artists seem a little recycled. Movies is probably the last song i'll listen to before I die. **** Terrific!!!!!!!!!!!! Expand

    The best female album since 2012's Fiona Apple "The Idler Wheel..."
    It's not so complicated as Fiona's, more accessible, more subtle and melodic. Weyes delivers intricate stunning melodies in songs, they are unique and resembling a lots of great artist simultaneously... - Enya, Johni Mitchell, Muse, Mazzy Star, Cocteau Twins, Lana del Ray. Movies - undeniably Song and Video of 2019...

    Beautiful album but I can see how some people might listen to this and think it's boring. Movies is an excellent and stand out track but onBeautiful album but I can see how some people might listen to this and think it's boring. Movies is an excellent and stand out track but on first listen it didn't get me till the second half of the song kicked in. In my opinion the orchestration and her voice carries the album in that order. Everyday is probably the closest to an upbeat song on the album and I would recommend to the casual listener. I'd like to hear Movies in a movie some day. Expand

    Was intended to give the album a 7, but then listened a bunch more times simultaneously to realize that Titanic Rising is worth more thanWas intended to give the album a 7, but then listened a bunch more times simultaneously to realize that Titanic Rising is worth more than that. It took two months, but it's rewarding.

    The first 4 tracks aren't really connected that'll make you confused, where will Weyes Blood take you from here? But then comes the title track, which eventually brings you to Movies (my best favorite track on the album). The rest of them are following. With the closing Nearer to Thee, it actually carries you to the beginning, hence make them as a whole.
