    I'd rather listen to Cocteau Twins, Siouxsie, Tori Amos, Cat Power, Feist, Björk or just about anything else. For those who compare Kate Bush to this...not in my opinion. Definitely a waste of space on my iPod. Very tuneless, meandering and didn't engage me whatsoever.

  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.
