About this album

Rolling Stone (7/5/01, p.146) - 4.5 out of 5 stars - "...Captures all the intensity that made their work together so gripping, so full of possibility and so impossible to sustain."

Spin (p.110) - "[S]eductively bleak..."

Q (11/99, p.163) - Included in Q Magazine's Best Folk Albums of All Time - "...confirmed Richard Thompson as the authentic voice of English music....The fearless use of seemingly incompatible instruments...provided a compelling backdrop for Linda's bruised voice and rarely has misery sounded so persuasive."
