  1. 100
    It's magical and mysterious, compelling and complex.
  2. 100
    A warm serving of elegant late-night ballads that infuse acoustic and pedal-steel guitars with back-porch rhythms and arrangements.
  3. Consistently intriguing, haunting and above all, very good. [Dec 2001, p.94]
  4. Bavarian Fruit Bread comes with the same warning as most of the winter season's baked goods -- it's rich, warm and full of flavor, but overindulgence will result in unplanned napping.
  5. 70
    Her built-in fanbase will exult in the sulky ruminations found here. [#52, p.101]
  6. 70
    The song structures are Mazzy-like acoustic webs that gingerly frame her longings. [Dec 2001, p.162]
  7. Sandoval's overly stylised vocals really start to grate over the distance of a whole LP. [#213, p.65]
