HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERon 29 March 2010
When this first came out it seemed a bit odd - Young Scottish folk star Campbell paired with Seattle Indie veteran Mark Lanegan? Not a natural pairing. But the music they have produced is superb. From the pen of Campbell, we are presented with deep and moving tales of people and lives broken by love. Campbell's voice floats and dances ethereally around Lanegan's gruff, worldly rumblings, with a spare backing that gives this a timeless, otherworldly atmosphere.

Atmosphere is the word. It is so thick you could cut it with a knife at times. Dense and smokey, with an aftertaste of whiskey and a feeling of regret.

This is a great record of slow burning blues/soul with a jazzy/folky tinge. Thoughtful music, made with conviction by two people who clearly enjoy working with each other and creatively sparking off each other. An album for those long nights alone with painful memories and a bottle of something that burns the throatand dulls the pain of the broken heart.

A classic album, if you like this then check out the follow ups `Sunday At Devil Dirt' and `Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart'. Here's hoping that there's more to come?

In my opinion as a huge fan of course its not as atmospheric as say "Hawk" and a bit "pop" at moments . However its listenable and is growing on me .

This is fine though having had it for a while now I don't play it as much as others which is a good test. Some good tracks, some average.

Unusual pairing that works beautifully. Great sonf crafted, produced and performed. Isobel's lovely voice contrasts perfectly with Mark's deep growl.
