    One of the more riveting and idiosyncratic tribute albums of the past ten years.

    Rather than merely bashing out folk takes on [the songs of Wyatt and Antony], they've remodeled them, retained the sense of gravitas and added a fan's love. Gorgeous. [Feb. 2012 p. 111]

    Taken at face value, they can come close to propaganda, but this improves their expressive value.

    On this wonderful live album, the acclaimed British group led by Rachel and Becky Unthanks interprets ... with spare grit and a silvery deceptive spine running through the sisters' Earth-angel voices.
  7. 60
    The covers of their favourite maverick songwriters more than matches for the originals.
