Album Review

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.

Singer/songwriter Beth Orton combined the passionate beauty of the acoustic folk tradition with the electronic beats of trip-hop to create a fresh, distinct fusion of roots and rhythm. Born in Norwich, England in December 1970, Orton debuted as one half of the duo Spill, a one-off project with William Orbit which released a cover of John Martyn's "Don't Wanna Know About Evil." She continued working with Orbit on his 1993 LP Strange Cargo 3, co-writing and singing the track "Water From a Vine Leaf"...
