High time for some reissues of Beth Orton albums don’t you think? The Rhino label think so, and thus they have pressed to (180g) vinyl this album, along with Daybreaker. Comfort of Strangers was recorded with the help of Jim O’Rourke as producer, so you just know that every little corner of these compositions shines through clearly.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 2nd July 2015

This album wouldn’t be half as good if it wasn’t for the input of producer Jim O’Rourke. Right from the off you know he’s had a hand in the arrangements and instrumentation of the songs as “Worms” kicks in. It’s Beth Orton’s voice alright but the music is warm and considered. His fingerprints are all over “Countenance” too. For me, O’Rourke’s production stands out on the single “Conceived”. It starts off with a neat groove - drums, bass and vocal. As the chorus approaches flourishes of piano and guitar become more prominent. After the chorus, strings come in. The song gets bigger and bigger as it progresses. It’s great. I remember when her first album came out everyone credited William Orbit with making it what it was. I’m flying the flag for Jim O’Rourke as no one else will.
