  • Summary: Backed by a 63-piece orchestra and a 15-voice choir, the singer-songwriter worked with composer-producer Vince Mendoza to arrange her songs as classic orchestral tracks.

    At times, this album is nearly exquisite, at all others, it is beautiful.

    [An] ambitious, stylish left-turn. [Feb 2014, p.72]

    It works best when Vince Mendoza's arrangements don't disrupt her carefully observed storytelling.
  4. Good songs, largely, if songs broadly governed by the imperative to “heal”: a worthy intention, for sure, but fluffed up massively in a compressed space like this, also a rather stifling one.
