Format: Audio CD
First a confession: I've spent many an hour in the office catching snippets of Beth Orton from a distant colleague's speakers - the sound broken up to the point where all I could hear were Beth's plaintive cries, and little of the fulness of each song, to the point where it was a distraction. As a result my opinion of the chanteuse was biased to the point of disinterest in wanting to find out more.
This album has entirely spun my preconception on its head. There is warmth, feeling and movement in every track on this album. Granted, many of the tracks here have been remixed by other artists (noteably Four Tet, who I'd sell my soul to listen to any day) but it's Beth's voice that steals it for me every time.
So I guess that this review is aimed at anyone who hasn't found Beth Orton yet but would be happy to hear what Roots Manuva, Four Tet and the Two Lone Swordsmen have done with her work: there's every reason to buy this album. It'll get deep inside you and leave you _needing_ to find out more.
Now where's that back catalogue...

This one's a grower. I wasn't sure at first, but the more I listen, the more the songs break into my subconscious, and I find myself singing them whilst I'm walking down the street. The album is varied and refreshing, in true Orton style, with some original takes on "Daybreaker" classics, and some mellow, yet edgy, new acoustic material. Give it a few listens, before passing judgement. I'm sure Orton fans will not be disappointed, if they give it a chance.

Makes up for the subpar "Daybreaker" 9 Oct. 2003
By Sean B. Mccarthy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For a while I was worried that I was the only one disappointed by 2002's "daybreaker", thinking that maybe I just didn't understand the record, that something was going over my head. In actuality, I think it's the record itself that was over the top. Only a handful of tracks seemed like real Beth Orton songs and the rest were lost in orchestration or aimless lyricism. "The other side of daybreak" is a much more steadfast collection, starting with a solid rendition of "ooh child" and ending with the excellent two lone swordsmen remix of "anywhere". So far, anything that Ryan Adam's has contributed to has ended up compromising the artist's work, save for Lucinda Williams' stunning song "Essence" and Beth's single "Concrete Sky". The acoustic version here, however, is just as strong without Adams' backing vocals. While "Carmella" seemed a bit too smug on "daybreaker", the four tet remix changes it into eleven minutes of bliss rivalling the electronic compositions from Beth's "Trailer Park". I think what really makes "The Other Side..." such a triumph is that it manages to please consistantly throughout without compromising Beth Orton's style and songwriting. All of the remixes make improvements on the originals and make them fit in with Beth's pre-daybreaker catalogue. "Ali's Waltz", "Bobby Gentry" and "Beautiful World" are at least twice as satisfying as "Ted's Waltz", "Paris Train" and the maudlin "This One's Gonna Bruise".
I don't think "Daybreaker" itself was total rubbish, I just find much more to sing about and sing along to on "the other side..."

Wait awhile and buy it used. 10 Sept. 2003
By George Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If Beth Orton put out a rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" on CD, I would buy it. Fans like me will want to buy "Other Side Of Daybreak" because, hey, it's something else by Beth Orton. But this is nothing other than what should have been packaged with the "Daybreak" CD as a "free" bonus disk. At the very least, it is nothing more than a CD Single with bonus tracks and should be priced as such. Either way, I would recommend not paying full retail... wait awhile and buy it used.

Dissapointing 10 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Simply put, I don't think the alt takes and remixes offer anything particularly new or interesting. The sound is flat. I don't think the tracks work well together in an album format, and all around it seems a bit lost. For some reason, Orton's singing doesn't seem to fit with the instrumentals. Her voice on that first track sounds as though she's dying, and I don't mean that in a good way.

There are a few promising tracks, esp "Bobby Gentry" and the Roots Manuva remix, but I think that's the case in spite of, rather than due to, Beth Orton's efforts.
Anyway, those of you who really like Orton (as I do) will probably go buy this disc despite this review. I suppose I'm writing this for those of you who are newly discovering her. For those of you who are interested in checking Orton's music out, I have to strongly recommend "Central Reservation" and "Trailer Park" as better places to start. She has a lot of great material out there that's worth hearing.

The Other Side of Beth Orton 6 Oct. 2003
By Steve M. Tornatore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I appreciate Beth Orton's folky side but I am a fan of hers because of her "trip hop" touches. "Trailer Park" is (maybe now, was) my favorite Beth Orton album and I was beginning to lose interest after being disappointed by "Daybreaker."
Yet here is a reworking of some of the songs on Daybreaker (including a beautiful live version of "Concrete Sky") that represents everything a fan loves about Beth Orton. Her vocals are soulful, as always. But no less than three of the tracks could be played in a dance club, especially the new mix of "Daybreaker." "Beautiful World" gives me goosebumps, which is a standard my central nervous system reserves for music that truly moves me.

By supermofo - Published on Amazon.com

Disregard negativity! Shout down the dissenters!

I've never been into Eth Borton - too twee - but this changed my mind. At turns haunting and at turns dirty and deep, its one of the only albums that me and my wife love in equal turns.

I can't get enough - folky dub and electronica, yummo. Oh and btw, the Roots Manuva song rocks hard, although if you are not quite up on the artical uk roots vibe then it may be a little over your head. Don't worry, you'll catch up one day.

Four Tet and Andy Weatherall are pretty amazing also. Of course none of this would be possible without Beth herself. I may even consider buying other albums now.

Rock on Tommy.
