    Though pretty, the influences of her recent international travels do betray a wind-chime-y whiff of Enya. [26 Aug 2005, p.61]

    These ornate, post-folk musings are bittersweet and beautiful. [Sep 2005, p.118]

    There's emotional violence, spiritual leaps and supernatural powers lurking in the shadows. [Nov 2005, p.96]

    Lovely and visceral at once. [Oct/Nov 2005, p.141]
  5. Invisible Ones stands steadily as an encouraging signpost in Fink's career.
  6. If you're striving to restore faith in a world of "prophets, pimps, angels" and "whores," you gotta do better than Sarah McLachlan melodies and a rented Haitian choir.

Too often nowadays you hear artists singing about thing they have no idea about, I thought that this album had a touch of real emotion in it. Too often nowadays you hear artists singing about thing they have no idea about, but Fink makes you believe that not only has she been there, but you have as well. It is an amazing work and Fink is a wonderful musician, playing eight instruments including voice during the album. Full Review »

    One of the best releases of the year. Though it may take a few listens to really grasp the the cd as a whole, it's worth listening to. One of the best releases of the year. Though it may take a few listens to really grasp the the cd as a whole, it's worth listening to. Unlike Maria Taylors cd, she branches out and does her own thing, and that thing is pretty amazing to hear. She's a breath of fresh air in the world of female singers today, who rarely sing about anything other than themselves and their problems. Full Review »
