1. Ken Tucker on Caitlin Rose's The Stand In:

    As its title suggests, The Stand-In finds Rose assuming various roles in her songs, but they really boil down to two: the person who’s been wronged and the person who’s committed a wrong. Rose produced this album with Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson, who also co-wrote much of the material with her. The production of any given song frequently rubs against the mood of its lyric, with downbeat sentiments made tense when strung along a zippy, coursing melody, or a hopeful verse called into question by the downward spiral of guitars, keyboards and drums.
