  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. 'Milkwhite Sheets' will come to you offering kisses, but beware the knife behind its back
  3. Fans of Anne Briggs and Vashti Bunyan will find a lot to love here.

    Warm acoustic guitars and spookily ethereal vocals add up to understated soundtrack music for a road trip through the Scottish countryside. [Jan 2007, p.134]
  5. Mojo

    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]
  6. Campbell's second extraordinary release of 2006.
  7. The music may be dreamy, but it’s always passionate.
  8. Spin

    Sheets is Campbell's hallucination of a cozy English garden party. [Jan 2007, p.94]
  9. When the sun comes out, you'll want to put Milkwhite Sheets away for a long time. It leaves you with an inexplicable chill and a sense that Campbell overplayed her hand.
