The House That Jack Built deftly showcases Jesca Hoop's unflinching tendency to pull focus from widescreen to close-up. Part siren song, part grim warning, it achieves a perspective-warping balance between the haunting intimacy of Hoop's delivery and an unconfined air of horizon-scanning grandeur from the outset -- tempestuous, moodily melodic opener 'Born To' shares this striking duality with later highlights 'When 'm Asleep', 'Peacemaker' and 'Deeper Devastation'.
