"Alison Shaw's voice....what's the word? Ethereal....haunting....otherworldly. She whisps along in a voice that shouldn't work with the music, but does. Sometimes she sounds lost, but almost deliberately so. Other times she grooves along in a more dramatic fashion. And I don't think I was expected to like it as much as I do. But I do. Ten years behind the times, granted (the album was originally released in 1993), but I'm sure enjoying listening to it. For me, it's the vocals that make it, but the music varies from spooky to more driving beats, which is also intriguing. Plus, there are lots of strings - mostly guitar, granted. But some cello (yum), violins and so forth as well."

"Yeah, this album brings back some real great memories for me. This music seemed perfect for the era and trime in my life that it was released. But enough nostalgia, what is great about this album is how well the music holds up. "Forever" is ethereal and moody and gentle and hard and creepy...all while retaining a very unified sound. It is a perfect album. The follow up to this release, "Loved" is also a great work worth getting. I would suggest purchasing them both with "Wings Of Joy". This is the Cranes at the height of their brilliance before the "Population 4" fiasco. For me, "Forever" will always remind me of the dark, exciting, romantic (in the grand sense) days of my college years. It will always remain the perfect soundtrack for that moment of time."

"A retreat into a dark inner world ... Alison Shaw's voice is haunting as always. The sound is harmonious ... soft yet energetic, dark yet safe ... there are lyrics, but the emotions this album evokes are far, far beyond words."
