Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (p.72) - "Cosentino perfectly captures the mythic California of backlit palm-tree postcards....But she also makes California's scuzzier side seem romantic..." -- Grade: A-

Alternative Press (p.78) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he record is sophisticated....THE ONLY PLACE mainly focuses on mid-tempo mood pieces: torchy ballads, wholesome '50s-rock, PET SOUNDS-esque shimmer-pop and and twangy indie..."

Magnet (p.54) - "Produced by Jon Brion, THE ONLY PLACE forgoes fuzz and focuses on Cosentino's charming, forlorn vocals, chic and clean garage riffs, and retro-fabulous grooves."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.53) - "BC's second album fizzes with both upbeat hymns to fun in the sun and achingly sad odes to lost love."

Q (Magazine) (p.97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "This second album ditches the distortion in favour of cleaner textures....There's no denying THE ONLY PLACE's indomitable West Coast pop-rock melodies and sugary thrills."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.83) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "THE ONLY PLACE has sharper edges than the blurry Polaroid vibe of 2010's debut CRAZY FOR YOU, both musically and emotionally..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.69) - "[I]ndie pop infused with the melodrama of The Ronettes and The Shangri-Las."
