    Despite its raft of celebrity collaborators, this inspired album keeps the focus squarely on Faithfull's elegantly weathered voice while drawing lyrical inspiration from her dramatic history. [16 Aug 2002, p.72]
  2. Marianne Faithfull's singing voice is like an open wound, a raw badge of suffering and self-examination that sounds best when the music gives Faithfull room to bleed. That happens on about half of Kissin Time.
  3. In her music, as in her life, everything revolves around sex - but unseemly as it is for a woman of a certain age to frug bawdily alongside Damon Albarn, Marianne gets away with it.
