Stephen Dalton at Classic Rock hands in a 7/10 review of 50 Words:

a more supple and experimental affair, with a comtemporary chamber pop sound grounded in crisp piano, minimal percussion and light-touch electronics … These compositions, none below seven minutes long, unravel into billowing jazz-rock soundscapes, interwoven with fragmentary narratives delivered in a range of voices from shrill to laurie Anderson-style cooing … Bush seems to tap a 21st century vein of pastoral Englishness that chimes with recent avant-folk excursions by Polly Harvey and Radiohead. The Snow Queen of Albion’s electric eden is back to reclaim her throne.”
