Rolling Stone (9/3/98, pp.102-104) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Welch sings with a world-weary resignation....(the) bare-bones instrumentation...settles softly on each track's surface, enabling her detached, narcotic voice to hover over the melodies. File next to Bruce Springsteen's NEBRASKA."Entertainment Weekly (7/24/98, pp.72-73) - "...The anachro-misery might seem all too precious if Welch weren't just a brilliant mimic but nearly psychic; you'd swear she was channeling the unwritten greatest hits of the Stanley Brothers....each improbably catchy elegy has a saving specificity of character and emotion attached to the tribulation..." - Rating: A-Q (1/02, p.123) - 4 out of 5 stars - "A os Angeleno Pixies fan who sounds like some God-fearing 1920s Appalachian farmer's wife...graveyard voice...[and] skeletally-picked guitar..."Uncut (9/03, p.92) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...This is Welch in full, dark flower....A beautiful, literate record earthed somewhere between the dustbowl and the woodpile..."Uncut (11/01, p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Brilliant..."Dirty Linen (6-7/99, p.77) - "...the songs are natural objects, scarcely betraying that they were written at all; they sound as if they have always existed....This record is darker and starker than the first, but more solid and more natural; a wonderful work."Uncut (magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Here were Welch and Rawlings in pure mountain mode, their softly graceful harmonising complemented by brittle, almost tinny guitars that recalled Willie Nelson."57.90769

Billboard (p.24) - "The singer is especially good on 'Life Is Better,' a sexy soul-rap track from Q-Tip's 2008 THE RENAISSANCE, and on 'Dear John,' a bleary duet with Ryan Adams that reminds listeners that even multiplatinum prodigies can get the blues."Mojo (Publisher) (p.97) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "This 18-song miscellany reminds us that talent loves the company of talent, one-off duets with Ray Charles and Dolly Parton underlining Jones's seemingly effortless ascent to premier league status."Paste (magazine) - "The burble of organ on 'Turn Them,' a duet with Sean Bones, may be the album's finest sonic hook, a sound that subtly mimics her mellifluous vocals."Clash (magazine) - "[T]he close vocal harmonies with Gillian Welch are particularly strong and a version of Roxy Music's 'More Than This' is utterly charming."Record Collector (magazine) (p.84) - "As a showcase for Norah's voice, it's fantastic. As an illustration of her ability to stretch herself far from the dinner party soft jazz of her perceived populist image, it's even better."Uncut (magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "There are knockabout duets with big names, but more interesting is hearing Jones sweeten hip hop tracks and add heavenly harmonies to indie sessions."0.6573162
