"Her warmest and most affecting album... with gorgeous, touching songs about family, legacy, fear and the pursuit of contentment." – NPR

"One thing that hasn’t changed is Taylor’s way with a quietly catchy melody and lyrics that can make you swallow hard..."  – Paste Magazine

"Taylor has one of the most remarkable singing voices of the last 20 years... a radiant voice. One that is more comforting than bombastic, more soulful than aggressive. She is real." – Innocent Words

"...the serenely beautiful voice most fans first heard in Azure Ray, framed here by echoing guitar and keys and simple, tasteful production. Even without cameos from some friends (Conor Oberst and Joshua Radin included), “In the Next Life” would be special.– 2016: Buzz Bands LA’s Favorite L.A. Albums of the Year
