  3. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    In the sparseness of its haze, Devotion feels ephemeral, like a photo taken at golden hour that's just starting to fade

  10. 8.0 |   All Music

    The album's vérité feel draws listeners into its ever-changing moods so completely, it's almost a shock when it ends. It's this skill at hypnotizing and disarming her audience that makes Devotion such a captivating reintroduction to Tirzah

    Tirzah manages to create a warped ‘90s R&B record with a soulful core and enough electronic dissonance for the modern age

  13. 7.0 |   Mojo

    A lack of polish - notably on the title track, which features Curl collective member Coby Sey - is part of the appeal, and if "Gladly" plays it very straight, then it's hard to carp at its loved-up optimism. Print edtion only

  14. 7.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    A bold statement of intent from a young artist who already sounds as if she’s carved out her own niche

  15. 6.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    This somber, suave music takes the sounds of experimental hip-hop and R&B and turns them into an ode to and remedy for personal strife
