    This record transported me to an world of icy, heathered hills and smoky warmth and love. Hope Sandoval seems to possess an unrivalled beauty that is translated in every record she touches. Record of the year? Probably.

  1. Over the course of 12 tracks and almost 50 minutes of music, there are hardly any dynamics to hold the listener's attention.

    There's a narcotic quality to these drifting ballads, one that perfectly suits these shell shocked, terrorised times. As the world gears up for the Apocalypse, I shall take comfort in Bavarian Fruit Bread -- a very haunting, beautiful record. [Nov 2001]
  3. Sounds like one long song of wheezing harmonium and heavily echoed, slightly out-of-tune vocals.
