    Ephemeral, beautiful, absolutely otherworldly! Nicely scratches the same itch as, and compares nicely with earlier female UK trailblazers (and obvious influences) such as Kate Bush at her peak ("Hounds of Love") & early Sinead O'Connor (Think "Lion and the Cobra" era), and more thoughtful and complex than contemporary Goldfrapp. I can't stop playing it.

    amazing, unique...you've never heard anything like this. She elegantly mixes the greatest elements that made Bjork stand out in her Debut era, and mixes it with the more simplistic elements of radiohead or sigur ros. It is truly a beautiful escape to another world.

    'Fur and Gold' is one of the most beautiful and adventurous albums I have heard in ages. The Kate Bush and Bjork comparisons are well-deserved. The album is full of stand-out tracks, but my favourites are 'Horse and I' and 'What's a girl to do'. Highly recommended.

    An engaging, fantastic and sometimes brutal album. The surrealistic lyrics and beautiful sounds make this the best album of 2007.

  1. Bat for Lashes' music feels like some lost specter that has fortuitously wandered into your home and can't help but haunt you.
  2. An entrancing, wonderfully surprising record which manages to feel both refreshing new and strangely timeless.
  3. Bat For Lashes' debut, Fur And Gold, is an album that delivers the listener from any form of humdrum existence into a deeper realm of dream and dementia.
