  • Excellent Double Plus (A++) sound from beginning to end for what is surely Ms Nicks' best solo album
  • Both sides are big, rich and warm with lovely breathy vocals and plenty of rockin' energy

R.E.M. may have made albums as good as Murmur in the years following its release, but they never again made anything that sounded quite like it."
