    Finely crafted folk is elevated towards greatness by the stunning voice of Alessi Laurent-Marke.

    Her second, now with indie Bella Union, is a precious mix of childlike insouciance and adolescent anxiety.

    Acquaint yourself with this successor to 2009's Notes From The Treehouse and it doesn't take long to see what Bella Union honcho Simon Raymonde saw Laurent-Marke. [May 2011, p.112]

    On the remainder of Time Travel, Alessi's Ark sounds like she can achieve mainstream success purely on her own terms.

    Time Travel has some stellar moments but is not quite the album to make a star of Alessi's Ark. The singer has time on her hands for that to happen, and happen it surely will.

    With that as an unavoidable comparison point and baseline, as can be heard again on songs like the title track, Time Travel is still a pleasant album, where what comes out more are the moments of variation on the form than the form itself.

    She's made a solid album of pleasant, though slightly conventional, country pop songs, and done a good job of it. But after showing such early promise, it seems like a shame that more people won't get to hear what Alessi Laurent-Marke is capable of.
