    Overall, though, this is a satisfyingly substantial listen.

    This is music full of heart and imagination and it is well worth investigating, even though some long standing fans of hers may be puzzled at first.

    Welcome Back to Milk scans as an overhaul of its protagonist’s romantic history, a poised reassessment of domestic situations that seemed okay at the time, but maybe weren’t the best, after all. Wherever her gaze turns, Houghton’s conviction is lethal.

    As convincing as Welcome Back to Milk's fury is, Du Blonde's rock is no more straightforward than Houghton's version of folk was.
  6. 67
    Welcome Back to Milk gives Du Blonde’s blisteringly creative mind space to experiment, and her edits show immaculate choices.

    A concise soundtrack of garage racket, gospel-informed blues, glam balladry and piano confessionals. [Jun 205, p.104]
