  1. An album of searching grace and innocence, this is the voice of ancient souls portrayed through the medium of a true indie heroine.
  2. 80
    The whole album is characterised by a subtle, all-pervading sense of menace that superbly offsets Campbell's snow-pure vocals and sparsely psychedelic orchestration. [Dec 2006, p.104]
  3. The album relies on a stark, tribal minimalism that sounds as if it was recorded several decades ago. [Dec 2006, p.93]
  4. Maybe she doesn’t need Lanegan to write, but his creepy presence is missed not only as a voice, but also in the DNA of the songs themselves. [#15]
  5. Campbell is not going to escape the "twee" label anytime soon, but at least she's putting new twists on her familiar sweetness.
  6. Vocally, a combination of steel and fragility is required, but Campbell can be frustratingly hesitant, often tending towards the limp side of haunting or ethereal.
