  1. There is most certainly a parallel universe in which Emilana Torrini is the Next Big Thing.
  2. 80
    This album subtly expands her metrical, folksy songcraft to the point where songs like 'Heard It All Before' and 'Fireheads' are just one spoonfed breakbeat from being charttoppers. [Oct 2008, p.113]
  3. 80
    Emiliana is blessed in her musical collaborator Dan Carey, with whom she calibrates an acoustic-led chamber trip-hop with plenty of room for her voice to breathe. [Nov 2008, p.111]
  4. 70
    Torrini's much more engaging, though, when cooing Me and Armini's less flamboyant folk pop. [Nov 2008, p.102]
  5. It's more adventurous than the album prior–-and generally more successful in this eclecticism than her debut, certainly--yet that Torrini’s best work lies ahead of her seems indubitable.
  6. 70
    Torrini captures a few joyful infatuations followed by a lot of lingering wounds; she’s vulnerable but never conquered.
  7. Torrini's voice is pleasant but also pretty anonymous, so it's therefore well-suited to any number of (mostly mellow) musical settings.
