A wonderful cd ...........
J. F Palmer | Tucker, GA United States | 03/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've listened to this cd 3 times now, and each time I take away a little bit more. To me, this is an excellent cd, with many exceptional tracks. My favorites are Rectify, Conceive, Comfort of Strangers, Shopping Trolley and Heart of Soul.

These tracks are expressive and compelling, to me. And her voice really works on them. I'll have to go back and give worms another try, since the song doesn't do much for me as of this writing. I really love the vulnerability in her voice, though for some it comes across as whiny. Not for me. I think she's great, and I'm really enjoying her more organic style."
I only listen to it unintentionally...

"Comfort of Strangers sits next to all my other Beth Orton albums in my iTunes playlist (Trailer Park, Central Reservation, Daybreaker), and it never gets listened to unless I do a listen-through of Central Reservation and then forget to switch to something else once Comfort of Strangers follows. Despite multiple listens, these songs are just not growing on me in the way that all of Orton's other albums that I own did. Even Daybreaker, which I found originally to not be as captivating as Central Reservation, is well-loved by this point."
Muddy sound

"I really like Beth Orton, even if she's not doing anything different than before. I find it hard to listen to this album due to the muddy sound. It sounds like one big demo and I find it to be really annoying. I want to fiddle with the volume on my computer even though I know it's not my speakers, but the album itself. I;d love to hear a remastered/cleaned up version.
