Laura Marling has a great voice, sure, and her music is super chill and comforting, sure, but it also doesn't do anything for me and is super boring. Sorry :-(

3.0 goodcjbizzlebizzle | May 19th 17

A step backwards in terms of both songwriting, album flow and musicianship from 2015's Short Movie. Semper Femina finds Laura Marling pretty much semper in the same exact gear for almost the entire album until the best and last track, Nothing, Not Nearly. Where her previous works featured great variance in the tracks, Semper Femina is pretty low key with a lot of minimal guitar plus string compositions and Laura staying pretty mellow vocally. She finally opens up on the last track but alas it is too little, too late. A pleasant, well-produced folksy singer-songwriter album but it lacks the life that Short Movie had and many of the tracks in the middle of the album are good but ultimately not memorable.

3.0 goodDIMS | March 19th 17

i like the way laura ponders about things from a certain distance here but too often, she distances herself too much to the point feelings and emotions don't flow at all, making this a somehow overly moody, sometimes lifeless experience. some really great moments here and there, though. she just has done better in the past. 3+
