'Daybreaker' is by far one of my favourite albums by a woman EVER. Orton has this special feel about her music that just keeps you attached. 'Paris Train' is the opening track and it draws you in to the very genius mind of Orton. Beth's style and vocals are very different from anyones I've heard which makes her one of the best artists I've heard in a long time. The best tracks are 'This One's Gonna Bruise', 'Paris Train', 'Concrete Sky' and 'Thinking About Tomorrow'. I highly recommend this album!

What a good fortune that Beth's best album is also the album I would recommend to someone who had never heard her before. Central Reservation put her on the edge of cult status, and Daybreaker has given her a small venue drawing power in college cities that is very respectable. The early songs are very pop-ish, well-crafted. the later tracks are more artistic and more authentically her, sounding almost as though she was trapped in a studio for weeks and these are her private diary entries. For example, "Ted's Waltz," my favorite from this album, is very intimate, much like "Blood Red river" from Central Reservation.
This vital artist will be around much longer, I hope; I've seen her on her opening concernt for this album, I hoep she has many more opening concerts for albums.

After buying Central Reservations, I was captivated by Beth's vocal style which ranges from sweet, to sexy to innocent. I really enjoyed Daybreaker especially since, compared to CR, it is a bit more upbeat. Mount Washington, Anywhere and Thinking about Tomorrow are the standout tracks for me. They adhere thoroughly to the album's title "Daybreaker" and convey that feeling you get when you start out on a bright, warm sunny day.
An excellent road trip album!
However, do not be fooled into buying the remix album. The unreleased tracks are mediocre at best and the remixes sound like the efforts of teenagers with Acid Loops. Someone thought to try to capitalize on the success of Daybreaker, but the remix album may have been a bit too ambitious and slightly disappointing, especially to those who are endeared to the original Daybreaker release.

Beth Orton, what have you done?
It seems that she has performed a stylistic change that ends up smothering the album in a downtempo mood. As with a previous reviewer, I agree in that Orton has made a significant stylistic change. Gone is the juxtaposition of folk with electronic, the inventive, the unpredictability of her first two albums. It has been replaced by a careful (in my opinion, too careful) post-production tweaking that makes the album sound...routine. This is NOT to say the album is a bad one. Certain songs hit amazingly sweet points, such as "this One's gonna hurt'. I think that 'Thinking about tomorrow' can stand on its own merits, sweetly fading into the background. For me, the only stylistic shakeup is the wonderful, unexpected 'Anywhere', showing the old Beth's ability to suprise. While definitely worth a listen (or for that matter, repeated listens), this album is more for the established fan. Newcomers should be directed to the stunning 'Central Reservation' or the equally sublime 'Trailer Park' before purchasing this album.

This is nowhere near the truly unique voice of Nick Drake. This is way more overproduced and nowhere near as ambitious as any of Drake's work. This belongs on some cheesy Hollywood romance starring, hmmm.....maybe Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck. Has that one been made yet? This one's for all you out there who actually think "Sea Change" is Beck's best. I wouldn't even spend the money on a CDR to burn this one.

beth orton sings like an angel. and it's prolly because she is. a british one, maybe with bad but forgivable teeth simply because, well, she's cute as a frekin button (just check out the cover art on 'central reservation'). her third full length lp after two other great records (trailer park and central reservation), here beth orton ditches some trip hop found more in her first two albums for some more straight up folk guitar work (not to say there is no hint of trip hop in here, it's just not so much in the front). on central reservation, the songs fly by up until track 7, 'the stars all seem to weep', one of my favorite songs on the album and undoubtedly the track with the most electronic feel, and then things get simpler yet strangely more dense with introspection and darker lyrics and sounds. near the end, feel to believe, a strict-folk affair, ends the album perfectly, kind of summing up her entire sad philosophy, though without despair, more hopeful than bleak, as if her body was out of her control (the passive, introspective staple of most folk greats).
on daybreaker, you get more folk and definitely more of a rewarding experience than her first two lps, that is if you can ditch the kneejerk reaction that this orton album is not nearly as accessible as her first two. when i first purchased daybreaker, the week it was released, i was kinda disappointed. i wanted a whole album of well produced songs like 'the stars all seem to weep' but instead here was an orton album that was really rough around the edges. but it was still a grower...
i lost my copy of daybreaker a few months after i purchased it (i seem to lose all my favorite cds: american music club - mercury, san francisco, sparklehorse - it's a wonderful life, a cat power lp).
