Amanda Palmer’s There Will Be No Intermission

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“This is hands down the saddest and most tear-jerky album I have ever made,” said Amanda Palmer to me last year, and that’s definitely true. Stand out tracks ‘Voicemail To Jill’, ‘Death Thing’ and ‘A Mother’s Confession’ have me in tears and I know I’m not the only one.

This album covers Amanda’s abortions, miscarriage, and struggles with motherhood. It’s beautifully crafted, but listening to it can be difficult. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. But the album is about more than a listening experience, it’s also a form of political resistance. As she said in our interview last year: “To fight the sexism, racism and division that is tearing us apart – is the power of women’s honest sharing of their experiences, against all normal-cultural narrative. Our true stories, without
the filler and gaze of the men who are supposed to approve, applaud or disavow them. This is what’s going to change and save the world.” Let’s hope this is true.
