    May well be Donelly's definitive post-Belly work.
  2. What sets Beautysleep apart from any of her previous records is that her voice is front and center, and stronger than ever.
  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.

    Donelly shows more confidence in her dreaminess than ever. [Apr/May 2002, p.113]
  7. An album full of songs so lethargic, it sounds like it needs a nap halfway through. [Apr 2002, p.71]
