  1. One can sense that she has complete control, lyrically and musically.
  2. 'White Lilies Island' sees Imbruglia free herself from the Alanis Morissette-clone image that you sense was very much forced last time around and actually manage to carve out an identity, both in her vocals and as a personality.
  3. Despite Imbruglia's big, pouty voice, it's all perfectly pleasant and quickly forgotten.
  4. A surprisingly agreeable, if lightweight, disc.

The critics obviously were quick to write Natalie off as a one hit wonder and did not listen to this disk properly. Criminally underrated. Beauty On The Fire is one of the finest songs ever made.
