    Friedberger's finest solo album to date. ... Supple, elastic, and in forward motion, it loses nothing in translation. Vibrate, resonate. [Jun 2018, p.86]

    Friedberger’s economical way with language, the way she can pack complex emotions into the space of a few lines, testifies to her craftsmanship. Though its origins are relatively modest--a woman alone with her thoughts and a cheap keyboard--Rebound doesn’t sound like a bedroom record.

    Rebound isn’t seismic—longtime fans will have no trouble cozying up to many of these songs. There are elements, however, that separate the album from its predecessors and suggest some tentative movement toward a new way of working.

    Melodically subtler than Friedberger's past albums, Rebound still swings thanks to her innate, and often-overlooked, knack for songwriting. [Jun 2018, p.112]

    On her latest effort, the singer-songwriter proves that the power of reinvention suits her just fine.

    She’s created an album that’s worth more time than a quick fling on the rebound, another engaging entry in her ever-expanding catalogue.

    The conviction that has defined her career so far is nowhere to be seen here and, whilst the reason for this change is still unclear, the result is a record of missed opportunities and inexcusable shortcomings. [Mar - May 208, p.54]
