    At once striking and enigmatic-- and artfully constructed.

    Stripped down of any excessive ornamentation, it's the most raw incarnation of Bat For Lashes we've heard yet.
  3. The songs are expensive in their depth of emotion but comforting in their intimacy and alluring appeal.

    A wonderful album which introduces new sounds in Bat For Lashes' music. In this record Khan leaves behind tribal-dark atmospheres to embrace minimal electronic (except for "Horses of The Sun", a track that reminds of "Glass" from her previous album "Two Suns"). If you've loved Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know", you can't not listen to "All Your Gold" and of you like Tori Amos you must listen to "Laura". Listen to it and you will not be able to stop 'til it's finished! Full Review »
