    To some, Hurts lugubrious, gruff delivery might jar with the LP, but it's entirely intentional--they cast the beauty and simplicity of the melodies into even sharper relief. [Oct 2011, p.96]

    As usual with Sawhney, it's typically eclectic, and surprisingly effective.

    While not as flawed and over-ambitious as London Undersound or Human, the feeling persists that this is an artist who would benefit from calling a halt to all the grand projects for a while and going back to basics.

    It's an awkward concept that might work better on stage, but Hurt is in fine form and the songs are a reminder of Sawhney's skill as a composer, and of the musical variety of multicultural Britain.

    Well-intentioned, no doubt, but it's a clunky, unconvincing listen where even the few musical highlights are far between. [Oct 2011, p.130]
