Customer Review

on 28 July 2010
The fashionable Folk-trip-hop infused 'Stars All Seem To Weep' is the weak link in an otherwise pleasant if uninspiring collection of folk-tinged ballads. Orton's vocal inflections echo a cross between the quirky delivery of a Kirsty McColl and the hymn-like contralto of a Joni Mitchell.

Orton manages to succeed with emulating the former but unfortunately fails to reach the heights of the latter. The old-fashioned folk and up-tempo waltzing-McColl-style ballads take a front seat, whilst the cerebral and reflective elements which typify the art of Joni Mitchell is somewhat underscored.

So whilst this is certainly not the worst singer-songwriter offering I have heard, it nevertheless is not as good as many reviewers claim it to be.
