Album Review: Things Take Time, Take Time by Courtney Barnett


Album: Things Take Time, Take Time
Artist: Courtney Barnett
Release Date: November 12, 2021
Label: Mom & Pop
Favorite Tracks:

  • “Rae Street”
  • “Here’s the Thing”
  • “If I Don’t Hear From You Tonight”

Thoughts: I’ve long been a fan of Australian artist Courtney Barnett, so I’m always excited about a new release.  On this album, the tempo shifts to slower than previous works and Barnett’s singing sounds a bit tired, thematically appropriate to the lyrics that speak of a sense of resignation.  My first sense is that I don’t like this sound as much as Barnett’s earlier albums, but it is still high-quality music worth listening to.
Rating: ***
