The whole record blends together seamlessly with nothing but refined songwriting and outstanding production. This is a brilliant record constructed by someone who sounds like they should be on their fifth record by now. It’s exciting to think this is only the beginning for Shura.

This long player doesn’t disappoint at all, in fact, I would go as far as to say the record is without one fault anywhere. The Anchoress can only get better and better.

The subdued nature of the songs means that they take a few listens to hit home, but once they do, it’s obvious that this stunning and vital record is one of the year’s best.

It’s ... an immensely varied and almost uncategorisable album of alt-pop music infected with a burgeoning artistry.  It is utterly startling, one of the best records of the year.

Instead of shying away from the toughest questions in her personal life, she channels them into a record that’s powerful, evocative and laced with a fine smattering of political commentary.

Skeleton Tree is beyond brave. It’s a raw, frank, open wound of a record and you get the impression that, far from Cave having to force himself to write and record these songs, on the contrary it’s the only way he knows how to deal with the grieving process, and he frequently falls over himself in a rush to get the words out.
