Album Review

As the featured vocalist on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Same Love," Mary Lambert acquired a certain degree of stardom — certainly enough to warrant a major-label release of her own. Welcome to the Age of My Body is that recording, a quickly released EP of four songs that showcases Lambert's voice, poetry, and politics, although not necessarily in that order. Opening with "Body Love, Pt 1," the EP immediately stakes a claim on the politics, as Lambert recites a litany of affirmations, urging females to feel comfortable in their bodies, comfortable in their sexuality, comfortable being who they are. Lambert's intentions are admirable but the attack is aggressive and wearying, so when the EP gives way to two piano ballads — the love songs "She Keeps Me Warm" and the melancholy "Sarasvati," each tangling elements of Fiona Apple with Dido and Sarah McLachlan — it's a relief (the skittering electronics of "Body Love, Pt. 2" are in this vein, if a little fussier). Lambert makes no bones about putting herself at the center of her songs — she name-drops herself in a line in "Sarasvati" — and she tends to treat the personal as polemical, which winds up giving her achieved pearls of wisdom the slight veneer of a personal column; her songs are meant to educate and inspire, not illuminate.

Customer Reviews

The most holy wow

Like everything Mary Lambert touches, this EP glitters with confidence, beauty, talent, and love. Once again, Bodylove never fails to make me cry; ditto with She Keeps Me Warm (the real queer anthem of 2013). I'm so grateful to have that song without a straight voice speaking over queer folks, as happens in Same Love. While more tracks would be appreciated, I get that recording and mixing is an expensive and time-consuming process, and am appreciative of any slice of Mary Lambert.

Too few tracks!

I'm glad "Sarasavati" is finally out, but these four track things are getting a little disappointing! When are you going to release "Epidemic," "Red Lipstick", "Born Sad" and all your other cool stuff including your super new song (the edited version of "I'll Be Your Wife"!) The world needs more music from you Mary, release an album!

Every Second is Amazing

This highly anticipated EP is incredible. Lambert's voice is silky and the lyrics are powerful. Beautiful.
