  • Summary: The sophomore album for New York-based singer, Shara Worden.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 18
  2. Negative: 0 out of 18
  1. Both sides of Worden are equally appealing, and it is the interplay between them that makes A Thousand Shark’s Teeth such an endless pleasure. [Summer 2008]
  2. 80
    Though there are crinkled guitars and tiny beats slipped into the mix, they only add to the eloquence of the lush affair.
  3. Given Worden’s skill as a vocalist and arranger, it seems My Brightest Diamond is at its best when Worden writes from a raw, wounded place.
  4. It’s a swooning, big-gestured album to get lost in. Discovering new complexities and subtleties each time is an added bonus.
  5. As it stands, A Thousand Shark's Teeth is beautiful, more than a little insular, and ultimately intriguing for anyone willing to listen closely.
  6. 60
    The resulting oestrogen charge--an operatic Tori Amos with a dab of Jane Siberry--is terrific when Worden reins in the "hello trees, hello sky" imagery, wincingly precious when she fails. [July 2008, p.110]
  7. 50
    It's all quite mesmerizing, until you notice the overworked lyrics, which weakly describe heartbreak in terms of weather, stars, and, uh, hearts. [July 2008, p.100]
