4 stars from Michael Dwyer in the West Australian. Another one who doesn’t like Sir Elton:
“the subtlest album of her sparse catalogue … the avalanche part of an album that tinkles, drifts and groans in thematic vignettes which hang heavy with esoteric promise while skating around narrative … Like watching snow fall, the effect is hypnotic and inexplicably profound. Bush’s piano style – full, resonant, uncluttered – is the backbone of the album. Its deep, commanding tone matches the mature register of her voice, still wondrously elastic but smokier … overall, what seems a whimsical conceit delivers a transporting exploration of the most wistful season of the soul, and clear progress for an artist who has learnt to choose words carefully“.
