    This record is a beautiful testimony to passionate and heartfelt emotion with Warden’s dynamic voice being the seductive centerpiece.
  2. The songs glow with rumination, and she avoids heaviness by staying elusive.
  3. Originally conceived as an album of string-quartet pieces, Shark's Teeth evolved into something more musically full-bodied.
  4. The shimmering showcase for singer/songwriter Shara Worden--frustrates somewhat, retreating from the rocking thrust of her debut. August 2008, p.162]
  5. It’s a swooning, big-gestured album to get lost in. Discovering new complexities and subtleties each time is an added bonus.

    In terms of breath-snatching bravura, Worden shines very brightly indeed. [July 2008, p.105]
  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]

    4/10. Below average. Definitely the weakest of all MBD albums. Hauntingly beautiful moments can still be found on it - here and there - of4/10. Below average. Definitely the weakest of all MBD albums. Hauntingly beautiful moments can still be found on it - here and there - of course, but the album as a whole is an uninspiring one. Boring most times. Bring Me the Workhorse (2006) though still far from perfect is far better than this. Grab any of the other before trying it - preferably: This is my Hand (2014) or All Things Will Unwind (2011), because listening to this first might push you away from MBD for good. For collectors or die-hard fans only. Expand
