We gave it a B+

Is she folksinger or electronica star? Orton again blurs the line by mingling acoustic tracks with synth-driven remixes of material off her last album, 2002’s Daybreaker. The result reveals a clear winner. While the electronic cuts drone, Orton’s emotive strumming in ”Ali’s Waltz” will break your heart. And her ”Ooh Child” may be the most wounded version of the classic ever.
