I like the album, but I was unimpressed with her on this most recent tour. She had a lot of emotion, which I appreciated, but her performances just looked more like a child having a tantrum than any sort of artistic genius. She honestly just seemed...unwell. It made me kind of sad.
I grew up with Tidal so maybe I've just outgrown her angst. I hope she is okay. I really do think she is a brilliant lyricist.
I love this album too! I never really felt Extraordinary Machines, so I was thrilled when I listened to this and loved it. But I had to pass on seeing her live for this tour, the tickets were way out of my price range. I saw her once before though when she toured for When the Pawn and thought she was terrific live.
