  • Summary: The English singer-songwriter has drawn comparisons to PJ Harvey, Cat Power and even Kurt Cobain for her sometimes abrasive, sometimes minimal, bluesy sound.

  1. If you’re looking for dusty, cavernous melancholia entwined with hard rockin’ and speckled with magic, then consider it found.
  2. Niblett takes the old quiet-loud dynamic and stretches it to unexpected lengths. [#258, p.68]
  3. Kidnapped By Neptune is one of those rare albums that's both sexy and dirty, and isn't guilty of trying to be either.
  4. It’s easily Niblett’s most challenging album to date, and also her most accomplished.
  5. Explosive, mysterious and refreshingly strange.
  6. The highs on Kidnapped are incredibly high, the lows very low, and there's not much in between.
  7. As the songs wear on, you quickly become tired of the unnecessary quirks.

    a very good album, perhaps a little long.
