The sisters have turned in an album that is placid and appealing, though completely disposable.
Pleasant but ultimately interchangeable.
Comprised of Carpenter’s typical album structure of uptempo numbers and mournful ballads, Age is classic MCC: sober, insightful, whimsical, and beautiful.
This is contender for year’s end best of country list, insightful and rare look into a singer’s psyche, and a collection of top-grade country music or soulful purging.
Moody, sensual, bleak and at times, even pious, Moorer’s latest album never commits to either side of being tragically beautiful or beautifully tragic.

"A wry tale which takes in Greek mythology, punk rock and influences of American suspense-drama, this is an effective and curious thriller about myth and obsession.
