Original recording reissued

On her stunning sophomore album, Central Reservation, Beth Orton slips free of the electronic textures that colored her acclaimed 1996 debut, Trailer Park, stripping her music down to its raw essentials to produce a work of stark simplicity and rare poignancy. With the exception of a pair of Ben Watt-produced tracks (“Stars All Seem To Weep” and a remix of the title cut), Central Reservation rejects synthetic sounds and beats all together in favor of an organic atmosphere somewhere between folk, jazz and the blues; the focal point is instead Orton’s evocatively soulful voice, which invests songs like “Sweetest Decline” and “Feel To Believe” with remarkable warmth and honesty.
