Beth Orton
Comfort of Strangers
Astralwerks

"Beth lulls her way through these 14 songs with great tenderness, warm emotion and subtle urgency. It's Emiliana Torrini, Cat Power and Nick Drake all rolled into one." (Playlouder)

"Orton could have trimmed three or four cuts and left a near-flawless, efficient package that was all killer and no filler. As it stands, it is merely excellent." (Stylus)

"The album is so spare and unadorned that it often sounds like a set of demos ... shorn of electronic window dressing (or the Nashville slickness that dimmed 2002's Daybreaker), Comfort of Strangers finds beauty in stark simplicity." (Harp)

"Not that she's lanky enough to be on the Laurel Canyon ladies' basketball team with redwoods like Joni Mitchell or Judee Sill, but Comfort of Strangers has her vying for a seat on that bench." (The Village Voice)
