100% The Arts Desk Her new album, following the release last year of the brillant Better Oblivion Community Center (a collaboration with Conor Oberst), is one of those collections of individually crafted jewels that have instant appeal, and yet grow in richness every time you're drawn, compulsively, to hear them again.
100% Backseat Mafia Phoebe Bridgers Punisher gathers the strengths of previous projects and then, as shown in her producing experience with the boygenius EP, doubles down on them with greater depth and understanding.
93% Consequence of Sound For instance, on a song like “Funeral”, a standout from Stranger in the Alps, she’s preparing to sing at the funeral of an acquaintance close to her own age and navigates the delicate balance of reconciling a personal existential crisis with the grief of the deceased’s family.
91% Earbuddy This story was a big one in getting us from Stranger In The Alps to where we are today with Punisher.
90% Music OMH In the end, whatever box makes sense for you to put Bridgers in makes little difference to the fact that Punisher is fantastic.
90% Pop Matters Dead Oceans 19 June 2020 It feels inaccurate to call Phoebe Bridgers' latest record, the consistently great Punisher, her sophomore album.
90% Louder than war
88% Paste Magazine Because you’ve been there (probably), and because Bridgers has been there, too, and she knows how to make this song about a stranger’s overdose into a highly relatable moment.

80% The Guardian Bridgers’s second album under her own name, Punisher moves forward confidently from her 2017 debut, Stranger in the Alps – an accomplished set that, in part, digested her vexed relationship with the disgraced Americana artist Ryan Adams.
80% The Line of Best Fit A record that grows with each listen, that takes it’s time for its stories to unravel, and that wears its love of literature on its sleeve as comfortably as it does its love of music.
80% Under the Radar Magazine Between the devil and the deep blue sea as it were as the song builds to a crescendo joined in by most everyone she could gather.
80% DIY Magazine Can you hear me now?” It’s 10am in California, and Phoebe Bridgers is sitting in the garden of her Silver Lake home, hood up and hunched in front of the laptop that she’s trying to wrestle a decent Zoom connection out of.
70% No Ripcord Within every giant cycle of new music, there’s always a notable album that captures the feeling of wanting to just curl up in bed all day, and it’s usually easy to miss in all of the chaos.
70% Loud & Quiet This is why, as she releases Punisher, she’s no longer an unknown quantity but, rather, one of her generation’s most prominent solo artists.
