"A debut of stellar beauty and hidden depths," cheered the Sunday Times, while the Telegraph noted, "(the) graceful melodies reveal a supple strength and modernity" in its 4-out-of-5 starred rave. The Independent summed it up, declaring The Staves to be "a distillation of all that's best about the folk heritages of England and America."
