Updates to this post come as reviews come in. These are excerpts but the full reviews are well worth a read - think of them as a fine wine pairing to the main course of music :) Links to the full reviews next to the excerpts.
The following is a review of "No Solo" by Terence Kumpf. The full review is available on his Medium page.
- From spoken word to dizzyingly soaring choruses, Goldfield’s voice is not only strong but necessary. Her acute attention to, and adroit handling of, political themes is what the world needs.
- On No Solo Eleanor vocally explores the reflective and the vulnerable, the driving, determined, and, most importantly, the empowered. The record seethes with righteous indignation.
The following is a review of specifically the track "Pyre" by Amelia Vandergast at A&R Factory. The full review is available on their site.

- if you don’t feel something listening to Pyre, you may want to check you’ve still got a pulse.
