FATHER JOHN MISTY

“Stunningly melodic... Tillman’s voice sounds fantastic throughout... It feels like an artist who’s spent time wondering what the point was, making peace with what he does, even – or especially – if it involves escapism. Sinking into Chloë and the Next 20th Century’s lush, sepia-toned arrangements, escaping with him is a pleasure (“Album of the Week”).” ★★★★ The Guardian

“Tillman’s writerly skills would have shone in any era... He offers a moving reminder of the beauty of life’s impermanence...As Chloë and the Next 20th Century sees Father John Misty escaping into his own parallel Hollywood reality, it’s highly entertaining to slip in alongside him.” ★★★★ MOJO

“Chloë.. is maximum Misty from tip to twinkly toe... As woodwinds flutter and strings swoon, Tillman’s voice rises to the occasion: his rich, warm delivery pulls you into the songs, barbed asides and beautiful melancholy impeccably balanced... Tillman’s writing brims with story-song riches, countering 21st-century cynicism with old-school romanticism.”★★★★ - Record Collector

“Singles “Funny Girl,” “Q4” and “Goodbye, Mr. Blue” are sprawling and ornate, like novellas set to instrumentation that spans FJM’s many styles, widescreen baroque pop that folds in both Old Hollywood and Americana. After the painfully personal “God’s Favorite Customer, there’s a distinct comfort in Tillman’s return to spinning detailed fictions at scale—and, as ever, spotting the truths wrapped up in it all is just part of the fun (“10 Albums We’re Most Excited About For April).” - PASTE
