CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Mojo

This is as moving and real as Orton has ever been.

80
Uncut

The result is both viscerally corporeal music, full of gristle and breath, and richly ambient.

80
PopMatters

Having only put out five albums in the past two decades, Beth Orton’s Weather Alive embraces her electro-folk past while embracing a weathered, gorgeous future.

Evening Standard
After overcoming multiple setbacks, Beth Orton delivers her most emotionally gripping album yet.

The Telegraph
Middle-aged discontent has rarely sounded so lovely.

Singer-songwriter’s first album in six years is an engrossing listen and offers a soundtrack to the peaceful transition from summer to autumn.

Beth Orton's new album is beautiful from the first minute to the end.

woah
there's nothing quite like going into an album from an artist you don't really know anything about with relatively little expectations and then being so utterly floored by the music that you just burst into tears
the soundscape this album creates surrounds you in a beautifully meditative haze throughout and the hushed vocal delivery blends subtly with the beautiful instrumentals
