Kacey Musgraves is a recording artist from the United States, and she has just released her third album, Golden Hour. Apparently, she is the only person in the world to have high-fived a British royal. Kacey mixes lyrical stories with pop and country, and embeds some progressive elements. Fans held high anticipation for this album worried that, like many stars, after two winners she had run out of steam. When they heard it, the wind was knocked out of them. Golden Hour has received a Metacritic score of 90/100 with five out of five stars awarded by The Guardian and many critics hailing it as the best album of 2018 so far. Golden Hour is absolutely beautiful: atmospheric, rich, lush, and hair-raising from start to finish. With dreamy, laid back, arrangements, and perky beats, the centerpiece is Kacey’s gorgeous voice. She has completely knocked it out of the park. Official audio for opener “Slow Burn” embedded below.
