The sumptuous settings you'd expect from a team responsible for luxuriously layered records by Matthew E. White (who co-produces here) and Natalie Prass do not divert from Reid's songs. On the contrary: Out of My Province features the New Zealand songwriter's most resonant set of tunes yet. The album packs a particularly compelling pull considering how resistant to easy answers these songs are. On first listen, Reid's third album resembles a set of quintessential, navel-gazing, singer/songwriter confessionals, with a frequent focus on the wanting, losing and pining for love which goes with this territory.
