    Same mold, same old. Hardly any new twist, hardly any progression, the mellow gutar cathedral with the lonely voice gasping achingly still persists. If you could make love to the music of the Cocteau Twins, this is for pillow-talking with much smiling in the end.

    An inventive album whose impact is lessened by Guthrie's illustrious past. [Jun 2004, p.107]

    Not that there isn't music on Russian Doll that's as lovely as any he's made, but it's brought crashing down to earth by deeply average singer Siobhan de Mare. [Jun 2004, p.86]
  3. It does seem like a step backward for them, and it doesn't help that there aren't as many memorable songs here as there are on the debut.
