  1. 80
    May well be Donelly's definitive post-Belly work.
  2. 80
    A wicked, weathered stream of sinewy, shadowy songs. [Mar 2002, p.102]
  3. An album which feels like a hand-me-down from a ghost.
  4. Donelly focuses on tunes that enter your head with a determination to stay for the long term.
  5. Beautysleep's weakness is that so many songs are pretty instead of awe-inspiring-- that she gives us only a little greatness.
  6. 60
    Donelly shows more confidence in her dreaminess than ever. [Apr/May 2002, p.113]
  7. Beautysleep veers from the exquisite (Keeping You) to the frustratingly bland (Moonbeam Monkey), with single The Storm the main highlight.
