This is the one before the one that got all the mass acceptance but still managed to get in the top albums of the year in Mojo. Here it has been re-issued with extra tracks. Hers is a hushed fingerpicked world where Leonard Cohen meets Vashti Bunyan. Beautiful, mystical work. Get on board before she gets even more popular.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 6th June 2017
Byrne is not only a fascinating songwriter, she also never allows the songs to slip into repetition. The building blocks of vocals and acoustic guitar may be consistent, but each tune is distinctive. Byrne’s creates tiny worlds on this album, and each world is an individual. Even the two instrumental tracks, “Piano Music” and “Piano Music For Lucy” are inimitable. Byrne might have roots in the style of another era, but what she’s doing on Rooms is transforming that style into something deeply her own.
