Here we have Clark at her most unapologetic, candid and seething: Pills mocks our culture’s heavy reliance on medication, and Los Ageless is a spiral into insanity over the breakdown of a relationship. Clark certainly isn’t afraid to be bombastic; the title track features vocals layered for an amplified effect, while on Young Lover her voice, quite astoundingly, resembles a theremin. There’re many angles to St. Vincent, which gives Clark the opportunity to continually morph her sound into a wide range of styles. Masseduction ultimately makes for a giddy, entirely commanding listen.
