Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.76) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Orton's lovesick croon still slam-dunks, particularly during the haunted opener, 'She Cries Your Name.'"

Spin (p.92) - "[S]he honors the British Isles' ancient musical roots...[and] frankly but coldly emotes over beautifully disturbing soundscapes."

Spin (1/98, p.88) - Included on Spin's list of "Unheard Music" - "Like a silver-jacketed rave kid who's still a card-carrying member of the Village Green Preservation Society, Brit singer/songwriter Orton situates her haunty, folky wails on top of city-slicker dance beats..."

Entertainment Weekly (5/2/97, p.60) - "England's Orton...pioneers a new genre--ambient folk--on her potent debut. Orton swings engagingly from despair to resolve, supported by slurred synthesizers and trembling acoustic guitars..." - Rating: A-

Q (4/00, p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 - " album for which the hammock might have been invented: slow, sedate, but as warm as the evening sun....this is a sublime, incense-scented joy from start to finish."

Village Voice (2/24/98) - Ranked #19 in the Village Voice's 1997 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.

Q (Magazine) (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A voice that recalled a disquieted Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake-style arrangements, head-nodding beats and blank song titles dove-tailed perfectly with the comedown crowd..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he mournful strings and bruised-sounding voice on 'She Cries Your Name' are still irresistible....TRAILER PARK has lost little of its appeal."

NME (Magazine) (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #24 in NME's 1996 critics' poll.

Paste (magazine) - "The demure singer sounds almost timid at first, but closer listening reveals a stubborn presence that remains the calm center of even the busiest soundscape."

Pitchfork (Website) - "TRAILER PARK holds up surprisingly well, and the remastered tracks still reward headphone scrutiny. Even more than a decade later, 'She Cries Your Name' still sounds great..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "There's no doubting Orton's songwriting and lyrical skills, showcased to perfection on 'Live As You Dream' and 'She Cries Your Name,' while her crackling, melancholic voice adds yet more gravitas to laments such as 'I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine.'"
