My Brightest Diamond brainchild Shara Worden returns to her Detroit roots for third album All Things Will Unwind, using the city's struggles as inspiration for a collection of dramatic, genre-hopping songs written for the acclaimed yMusic chamber ensemble.
Spin (p.78) - "The luminous ALL THINGS WILL UNWIND uses strings, brass, marimba, and mellotron, brilliantly showcasing her operatic, slightly scary voice in tricky songs that remain fresh after repeated plays."
Magnet (p.59) - "As with previous My Brightest Diamond efforts, Worden is most comfortable with melancholic and downtempo notes. Her wispy vocals on 'In The Beginning' are a familiar discomfort..."
CMJ - "[The album] bears the marks of a true blue perfectionist....An exquisitely tight and gorgeously detailed orchestral-bent indie record."
