My favorite tune: Collapse

The only achilles’s heel in Zola Jesus, ironically, is Nika Danilova’s vocal. It’s not bad-bad, but at the same time just isn’t that good. We’ve obviously heard much better in electronica. Nobody recommends auto-tuning here, perhaps more reverb and echo effects in the final audio mix will make a difference. For someone who once made a song titled ‘Lady in the Radiator’ it’s damn sure she can do a lot better!

My Rating: 6/10
