Critics are heralding her latest album and highlighting it “goes back to the ethereal roots the world first fell in love with,” said ElleThe New York Times called the album “Superb,” and Los Angeles Times noted “Musgraves returns on ‘Deeper Well,’ to the kind of rootsy, hand-played arrangements that defined her early work.” The Cut declared “the songs on ‘Deeper Well’ call back to her singer-songwriter roots” and American Songwriter proclaiming, “this is Musgraves at her finest, mentally and musically.” In the UK, The Telegraph note “this is a brilliant record” in their 5-star review while Sunday Times says “singing this beautiful burrow deep in the heart” in their 4-star review of Deeper Well.
