As a follow up to 2009's Rockwell, Heavy Meadow maintains and perhaps even expands Rossi's use of quirky eccentricities as she shifts further into a lightly synthesized production. Every song operates with a soft, seemingly unassuming rhythm. The effect is very pleasant, yet as a whole, the album does not explore much progression among the eleven tracks.
