  1. Central Reservation ... is ambient too, but not so much in terms of beats as echoey space and unobtrusive production. The focus here is on ballads, sweet and slow, and every string of every strum can be heard.
  2. "Central Reservation" is a decidedly grown-up pleasure and Orton is an artist who succeeds splendidly on her own modest terms.

    My alltime favorite cd! Very unique sound, combining great folk songs and trip-hop beats, without losing any of the emotion in the songs. By My alltime favorite cd!
