"Sparse but powerful, Charlotte Forrester teeters between major and minor chords, hope and anguish, a vulnerable confession to her audience at Newtown Bowls Club. If you stripped away all of the reverb, the studio trickery and the polish from other goth folk artists like Chelsea Wolfe and King Woman, you would have an artist like Womb, and Ilk Ither’s humble live recording transports you right into the thick of it." (SlyVinyl)
"While it starts with guitar work, drones, and a marching drum groove imbued with a deep sense of finality, when 'Airplane #1' by Wellington based singer/instrumentalist/producer Womb (real name: Charlotte Forrester) bursts into the full flight of song, we're reminded that as one story ends, another begins. A classic break-up tale delivered in translucent curling tones." (Martyn Pepperell, The Audience)
