It's not easy, but it's worth the effort
Rob Pulleyn | marshall, nc USA | 11/09/1999

"June Tabor is never going to have a hit. Her murky voice, her careful selection of material, her deliberate delivery and her sparce arrangements mean her work is not "obvious". Appreciating Tabor takes some concentration, but the effort is awesomely rewarded. (for some context, only Richard Thompson gets my attention and praise more) This is one of her best works. June takes her time, doing things right. Do yourself a life-long favor: give her a listen."

"This must be one of the most sublime albums ever recorded. The spare arrangements & that voice! This is to listen to, to think about, and be transported by. "10,000 Miles" is a masterpiece and if only the song went on forever. The really great thing about June Tabor is she prefers to record live, with the backing instruments, no stops, no drop-ins, no overdubs. What you get from her is a performance, a realness."
Perhaps her best; more variety would seal it.

"Rich alto; carefully tailored, spare settings; perhaps her best. A sui generis amalgam of pop, folk, torch, rock that evokes Judy Collins in her prime, but with a smokier, more affecting voice. More Celtic than Tabor's other albums. Perhaps less consistent quality in song choice. Would benefit from more variation in songs-too consistently somber and downbeat. [50:27]"
