    The Kid (Western Vinyl, 2017) contains 13 pieces, generally longer pieces than on previous releases. The composition is not as inept as in the past but now the problem is that Smith wants to sing. An Intention is definitely a song, not just an instrumental piece with some vocals floating around. The exotic overtones of To Follow & Lead fully blossom in the festive Until I Remember, her first successful song. But the vocals ruin the percussive game A Kid and the minimalist patterns of I Will Make Room For You, and, while they don't completely derail the savage tempest of In The World, they certainly tame it. The vocals mingle better with the arrangements in In The World But Not Of The World, if nothing else because the dense sound buries them. The instrumental novelty Who I Am & Why I Am Where I Am seems to be a leftover from another era. The multi-layered clockwork of I Am Learning hits the dancefloor and is probably a hint about the future direction.
