Sharon Van Etten has a beautiful voice which never fails to get deeply under your skin. If you have enjoyed her past releases this is a continuation and a growth. There seems to be added instruments to fill out the sound a bit more, though never to the point of overwhelming her voice or the mood and emotion she is invoking. As I was listening the first time I remember thinking that she sounds more confidant, then I noticed the first two tracks were Afraid of Nothing and Taking Chances, so that might be a conscious choice on her part. Still she shares her rawer emotions, which she drills into your heart with that voice. She will certainly never be a one hit wonder and this collection proves it with charm, beauty, grace and heart.

It was becoming obvious around the time of Sharon Van Etten's 2010 release "Epic" that we were witnessing the journey of a singer songwriter from obscurity to major league contender. Van Etten's last album "Tramp" verged on magical with songs to tussle with, live with and eventually fall in love with. She has never been shy to share her deepest emotions but on this new album she lays herself bare. "Are we there" represents a troubling emotional crash put to music. It is the story of a relationship wrecked by the demands of career and dark hints of abuse. Instrumentally the album is her most piano based yet and whilst the songs are about hurt they are nevertheless accessible and uniformly great. The opener "Afraid of Nothing" starts with a simple piano note, a lightly chiming guitar and a brilliant vocal from Van Etten. It is great song and draws you back time after time but better is to follow. The real killer track on the album is "Your Love is killing me" a staggering six minutes plus of musical catharsis. It commences with a funereal organ and oozes raw power from the off and what about those lyrics? They are littered with anger and regret not least "When I let you walk over me/You tell me that you like it/You love me as you torture me/You told me that you liked it". Not since "Blood on the Tracks" has a wrecked relationship been charted with such devastating force.

The fireworks, which follow, are not as explosive but there is great music to be discovered. The gentle ballad "Our Love" is almost sweet by comparison, yet even here she confesses that "I'm reliving my own hell / someone throws the ladder down / Still don't know what I have found in our love.

“Every Time the Sun Comes Up” is a deep and scarring song and leaves you thinking man, Sharon Van Etten made a really great album. If you don’t get any other song, grab that one. Compared to Tramp’s quiet moody album-closer “Joke or a Lie”, this one really leaves on a bang that has shown how much she has grown as a songwriter. ARE WE THERE does feel repetitive sometimes only because her voice is so specific sounding. Vocal range isn’t a highlight but she bleeds with a ton of emotion and I feel like she seems so much more focused and present on this record. Stand-out tracks are definitely: “Every Time the Sun Comes Up”, “Your Love is Killing Me”, “I Know” and “Taking Chances” I’m pleased with it and will be listening for many months to come!

This is a very fine album which has real musical and lyrical intelligence and genuine feeling underlying it. Sharon van Etten has a powerful, haunting voice and uses some rather unconventional harmonies which have great dramatic effect. Coupled with her original chord structures and melodic invention, it all goes to make songs which are distinctive and very powerful. They're not always an easy, relaxing listen by any means but they draw you in and often have a powerful emotional impact. There is also true beauty here in places – the lovely falling cadences in I Know and the beautiful Our Love, for example. There is more to be heard here every time I listen to it.

The whole album is a bit of real class, I think, and has the lasting quality of beauty built on noble bones. Red on Black has already written an excellent review here and has said much of what I was going to say, so I won't bang on needlessly. I suggest you rear RoB's review, listen to a few samples and snap this up. It is something quite special.

Are We There is SVE's best album to date. Tramp was great but this is even better. "Every Time The Sun Comes Up" is such a beautiful song and I see myself repeating it over and over again, almost hypnotically. According to my iPod tracking, I have listened to it more than any other song in 2014. It very well could be my favorite song of the year.

I love this CD. First heard Sharon Van Etten on a SiruisXMU Session. Fell in love with her then, and again after buying this record. Really chill tunes that are maybe not as heart-breaking as they are heart-cradling.

It's difficult to top a release like her 2012 "Tramp" but if "Are We There" doesn't match it, it certainly comes close. As with her last I've skipped around the songs fixating on one before discovering another, and I'll leave it up to others to analyze them. This is the kind of music to savor, and I expect I'll be listening to this in my car over and over again. For fans of Ms Van Etten, this should certainly live up to expectations.
