That music can be considered therapy is a well-worn observation. Indeed, there are points in this album where not only do you feel you're undergoing your own therapy session, but that you're a fly on the wall for Denai Moore's therapy sessions. This is testament to her lyrical skill, and her fearless approach to tackling topics that many still find uncomfortable to talk about.
Much like Solange's A Seat at the Table, Denai Moore's second album We Used to Bloom revolves around personal growth and self-acceptance, documenting the internal and external battles she has faced to reach this point, and it's a journey worth listening to. 'Today, living feels easy,' sings Moore in the first line of album opener Let It Happen. The track sets the tone for the rest of the album both lyrically and sonically.
