    A far more ambitious affair as producers Black Dog and Custom Blue underpin her crystalline vocals with subtly pattering lite beats, clever jazz inflections and humming electronic textures. [Dec 2001, p.102]
  3. A substantial improvement over the gentle snoozefest that was 2000's Early Days. [Apr 2002, p.76]
  4. Titles & Idols' songs solve the same acoustic guitars + electronica beats equation as do the songs of Beth Orton and Everything But the Girl, adding up to adult pop with just enough jitter to give it a tinge of hipness.
  5. Though lyrically ponderous and humorless, Titles and Idols is far from being an unpleasant listen.
  6. When the songs are powerful enough, it all works gorgeously. But elsewhere, songs as Ordinary Life or Nigel & Fiona drift towards diluted boho chic. [Nov 2001, p.122]
