    It All Starts With One's songs all deal with love's discontents, and their desperate beauty should make a hit with those who like to wallow in desperation and unhappiness. [No.87, p.52]

    Ane Brun has never before sounded so alive.[March 2012, p.98]

    Norwegian singer Ane Brun's quietly involving music occupies a spectral space in which her delicate, tremulous voice reveals shared intimacies with a rare poise.

    Brun's incredible voice - direct and moving - is at the centre of everything. [Jun 2012, p.117]

    One can be a grower: The sleepy and skippable "Worship" (featuring an obtrusive duet vocal from Jose Gonzalez) finds Brun approaching a more accessible vocal territory-one annoyingly reminiscent of Feist. But it's a mostly stellar experience.

    There's no reason why its quietly enchanting qualities can't go on to provide her with the breakthrough outside Scandinavia that she deserves.

    Ultimately, it is difficult to see this heavy and difficult album as anything but a significant misstep and a genuine disappointment.
