MTV News's review of Lydia Loveless's Real, written by fellow Ohioan Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib, is an honest, geographical, and personal take on the album. Read it here.
"What I appreciate about the music of Lydia Loveless, even after all these years, is that I am being sold nothing. Saying “the work speaks for itself” is a cliché that is rarely true, something we may say when we don’t want to answer hard questions. But Loveless has made a musical career out of both asking and answering the hard questions."
Another piece that screams at you to "GET IT!"
