Why did St. Vincent make an album that sounds like the 70s? Because that is the correct way to make an album. It feels strange to say this about the decade of Taxi Driver, Son of Sam, and Ford to City: Drop Dead, but greatness emerges from the strangest places.

The 2020s are a rough time, too, and Daddy’s Home could be the album people look back on when they wonder how we survived the pandemic—I went to the store I was feeling kinda hungry / but I didn’t have the money and the shelves were all empty—and whatever horrors await.
