- The Telegraph
"...unveiled, committed, uncontrived, persuasive, passionate, empowering, and utterly wonderful."
Sunday Times...“Stunning... there is an aura of sophistication that will win over listeners who never set foot in a folk club” (Clive Davis)
5 ***** Maverick Music Magazine...
"A winning stratagem from the folk princess. Is there anything not to like on the prolific Bella Hardy's latest studio album?"
4**** The Guardian...
"Bella Hardy is a fine, no-nonsense interpreter of traditional music and an excellent songwriter, and on this album the two modes collide... a powerful set" (Robin Denselow)
"There are many levels on which to admire Bella Hardy. That voice, of course – so vulnerable, exposed and unadorned – will always be her greatest weapon of mass distraction but, as we first discovered with Three Black Feathers over five years ago, she’s also one of the best songwriters of her generation."
Denbighshire Free Press, 10/10...
“Put quite simply, battleplan is as breathtaking as a new album can be”
