7/10 Jack Customer review, 4th February 2018

The Kronos Quartet are a superb ensemble who, for well over 40 years, have made magnificent recordings of their own and have collaborated with the likes of Bowie, McCartney, Björk, Nelly Furtado and many others. Here they have recorded an album of folk songs with four outstanding singers. The choice of material is excellent, some haunting traditional melodies alongside social comment in songs like Factory Girl. It's uniformly excellent (although personally, I find the closing Lullaby a little ordinary by comparison).
