Musically, Dark Place has an introverted quality. Swift shrouds Baylin in lush, stylized strains of orchestral ‘60s pop a la Nancy Sinatra, as well as coolly atmospheric ‘90s dream-pop, rife with icy synth pads, gauzy reverb and lacerating guitar tones. At the center of it, Baylin is artfully, magnetically elusive, sounding as though she’s choosing to keep the deepest, most ineffable depths of her emotions to herself — profoundly moved by motherhood, but not defined by it. What a gift to give a daughter.
