On The Guilt of Finding Joy in Kesha's Album Rainbow

Much of Rainbow exists in a conflicting binary: breezy, if contemplative (and, yes, sometimes even aggressive) tracks that speak to larger truths about shaking off the haters and rising above, followed by pleading, soul-searching numbers clearly written as a means to process trauma. They’re broad enough to apply to anyone and anything, but it would be hard not to conjure one specific face while listening.
