  1. 90
    A near-faultless record. [Apr 2005, p.97]
  2. These sparsely arranged folk songs are hauntingly pretty. [19 Mar 2005, p.59]
  3. While several have done it just as well before him, Alasdair Roberts has few peers when it comes to treating these rather cruel stories with such love and care.
  4. A sombre, sorrowful collection.
  5. 70
    The core remains Roberts' discomfitingly pure way with diction. [May 2005, p.109]
  6. It's a truly haunting record populated by ghosts. [May 2005, p.116]
  7. Lacks the dynamism and subtlety of Farewell Sorrow.
