  1. The overall level of creativity bodes well for Harvey’s next proper solo outing, but this one is a mixed bag.
  2. An album of sporadic delights much like Dance Hall at Louse Point , this is a footnote in Harvey’s career, but not one that’s entirely unworthy of investigation.
  3. After two decades of creative partnership, she and Parish no doubt know what the other is thinking, but it also feels like a mishmash of sounds from over her whole career, a flood after the stillness of "White Chalk."
