Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (p.86)
- "[A] revelatory folk-song collection with the sea in the leading role....Covering way more emotional territory than the film that occasioned them." -- Grade: B

Q (p.158)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] Bryan Ferry's brace of excellent contributions. Growling like a ravaged sea dog, the old smoothie is utterly unrecognisable."
