    Equally soothing and exciting, heartfelt and innovative, Ecstatic Arrow is Virginia Wing's finest work yet.

    Ecstatic Arrow is frank in its representation of the struggles of women creators, but balances its anger with miraculous joy.

    This is an album that benefits from its nods to another era. Anyone who pines for MTV's early years will find something to love here. Contemporary production values mesh nicely with an old-school execution.
