    It doesn't cut the deepest on first impressions, but those undulating tones of utter desolation seep beyond skin deep with every fresh listen.

    This album is, in reality, the sound of perfectionists giving into instinct. And once they shun exactitude and all its side effects, they emerge with a dazzling debut.

    By embracing its influences with as much lithe confidence as it embraces the idea of endings, Woman's Hour avoid sounding derivative by making pop music that looks you in the eye. If you meet their gaze, you won't find any tears, but you will find understanding.

    Conversations ends up a fine debut from the band, tightly focused and carefully constructed but still filled with plenty of understated heart.

    For the most part, there is a stalwart consistency that interweaves through the tracks, Conversations feeling like the outcome of a thoughtful and heartfelt dialogue.

    While the album repays repeated listening, Burgess's vocals throughout conjure an air of wounded melancholy. Perhaps the key to real enjoyment is little and often.

    Even with a groundswell of atmospheric guitar sounds and ghostly keyboards,the album's slow-burning style never fully ignites. [Aug 2014, p.91]
