Angel Olsen is back, and she’s brought a band. All Mirrors is an effort of musical growth reflecting personal growth, finding Olsen exploring themes of change, acceptance, being a stranger to yourself, and letting go. The first track, “Lark,” feels like autumn in New York: six minutes of sweeping, full strings, bringing with them triumphant possibility. While the title single emits heavy Twin Peaks vibes with its synth and bass. Olsen’s soft and raw vocals weave it all together, whether they’re fuzzed, echoed, or familiarly front-and-center. The show of risk and evolution makes it clear—this is perhaps her strongest album yet. (5/5)
