Scarlet's Walk was reviewed in the November 2002 issue of Q Magazine in the U.K. It got 3 out of 5 rating. While that is not a terrible rating, I felt the review was fairly negative. Thanks to Martin Eden, Neil Alexander and Lara Fisher for sending this review to me.
"Never one to do things by half, here the flame haired one takes a metaphorical wander round America - and hey, by extension, herself - in the company of the titular Scarlet, creating an 18-strong song cycle into the bargain. As ever, God, sex, betrayal and redemption loom large, and with lines such as "a dash of truth spread thin like a flag on a popstar on a bendoiazepane" she's still operating at the end of the twig. Yet ear-snagging lyrics are only half the story. And with her piano totally dominant and none of the gothic flourishes of, say, From the Choirgirl Hotel, the music here only rarely matches up. Or maybe it's her party tricks wearing just a little thin."
