6/10 Brian Staff review, 26 August 2010

Another act who regularly polarises the office down the middle is old warbly chops and his sad-eyed baroque balladry. Personally I've always respected her wavering, soulful heartfelt take on things, even if her voice can often be an acquired taste side. You cannot deny she's one of the most distinctive vocalists on the planet these days. The fact she's added his tragic tones to so many cool, contemporary records over the last few years is testament to his worth & the love she commands. This new EP opens with the title track, a kind of ever-intensifying stax-soul ballad which is pretty darn ace. Ignoring the "wistful fat man at a piano" style un-plaudits she's receiving from a certain corner of the office, 'You are the Treasure' is an understated slice of melancholy & heartbreak that will test the hardest heart. The sombre piano-led tone continues unabated until the twinkly MOR of 'Pressing On', her voice becoming more of a strange comfort than ever until...until he goes and nearly DESTROYS every good thing she's ever done by covering the overrated, sickly & sentimental pile of audio gash that is Lennon's 'Imagine' If you could cut CDs with scissors then I'd shave off about 2 and a half inches of this shiny fucker just so that...THAT THING could never torment me again. Vinyl lovers - get yer stanleys out at the ready. You lose a whole star for that, damn FOOL.
