I listen to this podcast by music critic Steven Hyden, called Celebration Rock, and he had an episode recently on Boarding House Reach. Another critic and Hyden do some back and forth about the record. Hyden likes it, the other critic does not. I think it's worth a listen. Sort of made me reevaluate what I expect from an artist.
I searched to make sure I was not reposting, hope I didn't goof.
