The Other Side of Daybreak

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
A companion to her acclaimed 2002 album, Daybreaker, this ten-song collection of remixes and rarities spans the breadth of Beth Orton's talent, from expressive folkie to electronica experimentalist. On the former count, her acoustic version of the Five Stairsteps' gospel-tinged soul hit "Ooh Child" flaunts the aching beauty in Orton's willowy voice, and the live acoustic rendition of her own "Concrete Sky" strips the original of Ryan Adams's cushioning harmonies and a tinkling piano arrangement to reveal the heartache at the song's core. But Orton's traditionalist tendencies have always coexisted with her desire to stretch her songs at the hands of able ...

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
A companion to her acclaimed 2002 album, Daybreaker, this ten-song collection of remixes and rarities spans the breadth of Beth Orton's talent, from expressive folkie to electronica experimentalist. On the former count, her acoustic version of the Five Stairsteps' gospel-tinged soul hit "Ooh Child" flaunts the aching beauty in Orton's willowy voice, and the live acoustic rendition of her own "Concrete Sky" strips the original of Ryan Adams's cushioning harmonies and a tinkling piano arrangement to reveal the heartache at the song's core. But Orton's traditionalist tendencies have always coexisted with her desire to stretch her songs at the hands of able knob-twiddlers like the Chemical Brothers. Here, she collects remixes from post-rock sound collagist Four Tet, trip-hop boundary pusher Roots Manuva, and IDM linchpin Two Lone Swordsmen. Four Tet, a.k.a. Kieran Hebden, turns in an exceptional version of "Beautiful World" that nods to both the Velvet Underground and the psychedelic techno of the Chem Bros i.e., "The Private Psychedelic Reel", and Roots Manuva, a.k.a. Rodney Smith, makes an unlikely infusion of leathery hip-hop beats and sultry raps work to Orton's advantage. Throw in two album-worthy Daybreaker outtakes -- the spare "Ali's Waltz" and the swooning, strings-enhanced "Bobby Gentry" sic, named for the unsung country singer and Glen Campbell duet partner -- plus a video for "Concrete Sky," and you have an essential hour's worth of music from a diverse and fascinating talent.
All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Singer/songwriter Beth Orton freshened up the somber spirit of her 2002 effort Daybreaker with The Other Side of Daybreak. This mix of treasures culls B-sides, remixes, and rarities from some of Orton's sunnier moments, offering a rosy-colored theme to Daybreaker itself. The chilling remake of the Five Stairsteps' "O-o-h Child" is a delightful surprise, while select remixes by Four Tet add an impressive style and vibe to "Carmella" and "Daybreaker." Orton's talent as a singer and songwriter prevent her from falling into any one category. The Other Side of Daybreak proves that. Elements of Orton's fragile presentation yearn to be reshaped, and that's what makes her a star among many. An acoustic version of Orton's soon-to-be classic, "Concrete Sky," captures a brilliant moment from her sold-out show at London's Royal Albert Hall. Fans will be smitten with Orton's ease as a performer, for this lovely song highlights Orton's natural warmth as an individual and as an artist. The Other Side of Daybreak is an added bonus for Orton loyalists; although Daybreaker wasn't as cohesive as Central Reservation, it should be appreciated in the long run of her blossoming career.
New York Times - Kelefa Sanneh
A slim but appealing collection of remixes and outtakes.
Rolling Stone - Geoffrey Himes
You can mess with Orton's music however you want...and the songs will still work, because her melodies are that strong and her voice that compelling.
Entertainment Weekly - Jim Farber
[Orton's] "Ooh Child" may be the most wounded version of the classic ever. (B+)

A slim but appealing collection of remixes and outtakes.
