The Line of Best Fit - 80
Based on rating 8/10

With the last fifteen years of her professional life consumed by Hadestown - a phenomenon she has labelled as "some kind of hell" - the COVID-19 pandemic forced Mitchell to give into stillness. Having moved from New York to Vermont at the start of the pandemic, and shortly after giving birth to her second child, she began writing the songs that would make up her self-titled album in solitude.

No Ripcord - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Anaïs Mitchell has spent a little over a decade getting lost in worlds rich in character and wonder–whether it's the 2012's concept album Young Man in America or 2010's Greek tragedy turned Broadway musical Hadestown.

Mitchell's self-titled comeback is honest songwriting in its purest form, on which she navigates memories and emotions with charming, understated chamber-folk.
