    It's not an album for those with short attention spans but, in a world of lightweights, Tabor's a colossus and this is one of her finest hours.

    Ashore is the product of decades of musical maturation and technical refinement, and is an unalloyed triumph.

    It's the skill of Tabor, the lyric interpreter, that is most telling and, predominately set around atmospheric piano and accordion arrangements, this deeply affecting collection of sea stories demonstrates the core of her art almost to perfection. [Mar 2011, p.108]

    While no less intense, Ashore--a collection of 13 songs each connected to the sea--is both warm and alluring. [Feb 2011, p.99]

    These are quietly powerful and chilling songs with sensitive, restrained backing from Huw Warren on piano, Andy Cutting on accordion, Mark Emerson on violin and Tim Harries on bass.

    Holding the eclectic mix together is Tabor's characteristic raw yet tender voice, which carries the weight of the world while looking out from a rugged and brutal shore across a bleak, grey but ultimately beautiful ocean.
