"Her self-titled debut two years ago set the tone, ghostly and erotic Delta blues from the then 23-year-old Ethiopian Finn. Wagner’s hypnotic sound depends on an intricate, fingerpicked acoustic guitar and a vocal poignant and macabre in its innocence. To listen to it is to go where only Nick Cave’s Murder Ballads or P.J. Harvey’s To Bring You My Love have trod before, a place of shimmering horror almost salved by love. (...) This album is more clinging than quicksand, it is uncompromising, transcendent voodoo." (Mojo 5/5).
