    Grace & Lies isn't the kind of record you could, or probably should, play every day. Not simply because it's intense or occasionally over morose but mainly because it's pretty, bloody, special. It's a little box of whispers and secrets that'll haunt your heart and dreams aplenty.

    Grace & Lies works best when it lays it on thick - opting for textures over latticework -and is least successful when it strips back and relies on its acoustic-folk undercarriage. Thankfully, the former predominates.
  3. Grace and Lies is a terrific disc and the signal of a strong new talent, but far too often the entire effort feels like a solo album and a vessel to showcase Krans' alto voice.
