Another five stars from Simon Price in the Independent (on Sunday):

to the relief of anyone who carries a torch for the reclusive genius, it’s a beauty. Formed of just seven songs, albeit ones of considerable length, its themes and tales all relate in some way to snow. Its sound is mimetic of the white stuff: specifically the kind of snow that arrives unannounced and settles gently in the night, rather than a dramatic, howling blizzard … The album reaches a peak with “Snowed in at Wheeler Street”, a duet with Elton John which seems to postulate a belief in reincarnation … with “Among Angels”, we’re back to that delicate, hesitant piano, and she melts away again, just like the snowman on her sheets.
