I... actually think the album is a little back-loaded, with all the truly great and interesting songs in the second half. The whole thing achieves lift off with "camera roll" and never hits the ground after that, but it was kind of struggling to hold my attention before that and I could have actually listened to more just as it cut off. The song lengths are also a little frustrating; for all the talk about tragedies, a lot of it isn't allowed to linger long enough to really hit. That was just my first listen though. It's solid, but I think @theelusivechanteuse might be correct in saying that compartmentalising the album into a linear story is maybe a little restrictive and even a little... simplistic. I doubt the dissolving of her marriage followed a clean narrative. Enforcing one on it for the album means that songs have to be rather singular in their topics or face disrupting the narrative, and as a consequence it makes the songs directly about the meat of the topic more interesting. Am I even making sense?
