Olsen has been collecting numerous accolades for the album, including:

“Why She’ll Be Big: ‘Forgiven/Forgotten,’ the song you can hear now from Olsen’s second album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, will singe anyone expecting the haunted-coffeehouse strumming she has become cultishly known for. But the rest of Burn blearily combines raw rock and harrowing folk, for a captivating listen that will be crucial to hear live . . . ” – Entertainment Weekly [14 Rising Stars to Watch In 2014]

“While the arrangements are more muscular than before, her high-arching voice remains unobstructed and completely devastating.” – SPIN [50 Albums You Gotta Hear in 2014]

“On ‘Forgiven/Forgotten’ the explosive lead-off single from her second album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, the instruments around her finally match the intensity of her voice.” – Pitchfork [Best New Track]

“Her new album doesn’t come out till February, but it’s an early frontrunner for one of Bob Boilen’s favorites in 2014.” – NPR Music’s “All Songs Considered”

“[Angel Olsen] has gone ahead and plugged in, with a full rock band sound that seems like it’s rearing to overwhelm everything in its path.” – The FADER
