    It’s her grandest and greatest evolution yet.

    Remind Me Tomorrow is not only a reminder of the power of love but also features some of Van Etten's finest work to date.

    Musically, she’s moved on from the folky Americana that made her name, and moved towards a more doomy, synth-based sound. Yet it suits her down to the ground.

    Many of Sharon Van Etten’s fans may be disappointed by the lack of sadness and darkness on Remind Me Tomorrow, and while there are still elements of both in the album’s undertones, there’s more of a hopefulness and sense of promise that suits her just as well.

    Remind Me Tomorrow turns on thoughts of growing older and reflecting on the past, resulting in some of Van Etten’s most mature lyrics to date. Most bittersweet is “Seventeen,” which applies radiant clarity to the hazy, faded production aesthetic of a band like the War on Drugs. Even when swamped in overproduction, Van Etten’s performances are uniformly the best of her career, and Congleton for once gives her the perfect amount of space.

    “Seventeen” winks at the inevitable, then celebrates it. Remind Me Tomorrow is best in thrall to this untouchable energy, when Van Etten and her band sound ecstatic despite their worldly wisdom.

    If the music at times fails to convey the particularities of her lyrics on the trip-hoppy "Memorial Day," Van Etten remains an insightful chronicler of small moments that produce overwhelming emotions. [Feb 2019, p.37]

    An incredible album, a natural progression for an amazing artist, Sharon has captured her spirit in this body of work, and it pays off. A must-listen.

    I was really looking forward for this album having listened to the four singles that she released and it was worth the wait. It has everythingI was really looking forward for this album having listened to the four singles that she released and it was worth the wait. It has everything a good album should have, meaning good vocals and lyricism. Some songs are memorable and passionate like Seventeen, Jupiter 4 , I Told You Everything while other songs are just good ( Memorial Kid, Malibu). I personally think that Comeback Kid is going to be an indie classic hit. To conclude, a great album from a great artist. Expand

    Its a good album, I don't think it's as good as a lot of critics are saying it is though. I'm not a fan of an artist revamping their soundIts a good album, I don't think it's as good as a lot of critics are saying it is though. I'm not a fan of an artist revamping their sound with synths b/c that's what's expected of them. SVE has been churning out solid indie rock/folk rock for over a decade, and now that she's added synths people lose their crap.

    On the flip side, "Seventeen" has SOTY potential. One of her most dynamic tracks yet.
