Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan
Ballad of the Broken Seas

"On paper it's a potentially disastrous pairing ... This shouldn't work at all, right? Well, it does." (www.drownedinsound.com)

"If you want to know what a duet between Mary Poppins and Satan sounds like, then Ballad of the Broken Seas is surely a close approximation." (www.playlouder.com)

"Campbell's voice hovers over the mix like a kind of angelic mist, while [Lanegan's] as rough as sandpaper, gives a sense of Johnny Cash-style fatalist melodrama." (Mojo)

"Like heavily mustached-country perv Lee Hazlewood leering over Nancy Sinatra, Lanegan's boot-leather baritone is smothered over Campbell's guileless tones in an oddly sensual way, giving this album the unmistakable feel of an instant classic." (NME)
