Best Songs of 2020
(December 8, 2020) Many publications are coming out with their year end best songs lists and
"Gaslighter" has been included on many of those lists.
NPR said "It's a rousing,
harmony-rich, devastatingly specific (and yet somehow universal) takedown of a man who knows exactly what he did on Natalie
Maines' boat." They picked "Gaslighter at #26. NPR 100 Best Songs of 2020
Pitchfork listed "Gaslighter" at #60on its Top 100 Songs: "Its belt-along chorus and Natalie Maines’ post-divorce barbs make the song immediately
satisfying, a dose of the band’s familiar blistering humor served with an assurance that they were ready for the current
moment after so much time away." Pitchfork
Rolling Stone's 50 Best Songs puts it at
number 10: The Chicks blasted back this year with the best
jerk-torching anthem they’ve given us since the glory days of “Goodbye Earl,” back in the late-Nineties.
The critics of the New York Times listed "Gaslighter" and "March March" on their best lists.
On "March March": Country hasn’t
sounded like this, with a blipping beat and four-letter-word lyrics. The arrival of fiddle and banjo doesn’t change
things; it’s 2020, and divisions can’t be bridged.
On "Gaslighter": "it triumphed mightily on the title track, a pungent smack of post-divorce country-pop
that — for listeners less inclined to fall into the “Shut Up and Sing” camp — easily doubles as yet
another fiery rejoinder in the direction of the White House." New York Times
Time Magazine's Best Albums
(November 30, 2020) Time magazine listed Gaslighter
at number 4 on its Top 10 albums of 2020.
the beloved trio of musicians returned with a vengeance. Quite literally: Gaslighter seethes with righteous rage
(“Sleep at Night”), conveys a desire for comeuppance and change (“March March”) and—in its most
heart-wrenching moments—celebrates the wholesome, soothing glory of female solidarity (“Julianna Calm Down”)."
