Sugaring Season based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is by far Beth Orton's best work! It's one of those CD's that you want to listen to over and over and over again!
Stripped of the sometimes distracting electronica elements of her past solo work, Beth let's her unmistakably beautiful voice take center stage on "Sugaring Season." Opening with the gorgeous "Magpie," the tone is set for, perhaps, the best batch of songs of Beth's career. This album invokes elements of Joni Mitchell & Bert Jansch, with a feel that is much more purely folk based, than her earlier work. The album also has a wonderful maturity about it, a sense that these songs are from an incredibly pure place, with a sense of reflection and assessment. The production and backing musicians, are also stellar.
