    It isn’t quite as good as 1979’s extraordinary Broken English, but the likes of Falling Back and Sparrows Will Sing are the equal of anything she’s done since.

    Give My Love to London is as complete a portrait of the artist--at least from the late '70s on--as we've ever had. In total, it reveals no abatement in her creative renaissance.

    She’s Faithfull: volatile and unpredictable, intellectual and insightful, savage and soothing, and delivering in Give My Love to London as accomplished and compelling an album as she’s ever made.

    She draws excellence from star collaborators.

    Faithfull’s voice may be coarse, her tuning wayward, but the conviction with which she anticipates this “fresh breeze” is unmistakable.
