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 Comfort of Strangers. Daybreaker scored into the Top Ten when it was first released in 2002, and it finds Orton in a lounging folktronica mood.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 2nd July 2015
“Daybreaker” isn’t Beth Orton’s best album but it has some good songs. Most notably, the single “Concrete Sky” which features vocals from Ryan Adams on the chorus. “Mount Washington” strays into late ‘70s Joni Mitchell territory – singer/songwriter infused with gentle jazz flourishes. “This One’s Gonna Bruise” is probably the best moment on here though, it’s one of those times where a singer/songwriter pours their heart out and just gets it right. “Thinking About Tomorrow” is an appropriate closing track, typical of Orton’s style with sweeping strings and melody on the chorus.
