AllMusic Review by

Reading the lyric sheet to Between the Days, Bainbridge's follow-up to the successful Garden, one wonders how the singer will turn such trite words into clever songs. Yet, from the first notes of the title track Bainbridge's little-girl voice hits all the peaks and valleys of the melody like an old pro, pulling nuances that you never knew existed out of those simple sentences. Credit is due to her long-time collaborator, Siew, whose clean, layered production gives the songs a depth that wouldn't be found otherwise, allowing them to breathe and expand as Bainbridge's vocals effortlessly float over top.
