Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered anthology of the British singer/songwriter's recordings made for the deConstruction/Heavenly labels that are now in the hands of Sony-BMG. These includes tracks from her first three albums "Superpinkymandy", "Central Reservation" and "Trailer Park" as well as all the single EP's that were released in conjunction with promoting those albums as well. CD1 includes highlights like "She Cries Your Name", "Stolen Car", "Touch Me With Your Love" and "The Sweetest Decline". CD2 features remixed tracks and others from singles recorded in collaboration with The Chemical Brothers, Terry Callier and William Orbit (with whom she started out as half of the duo Spill).

This double CD collection of Beth Orton songs is for anyone who cannot get enough of Beth Orton's wonderful music. I guess that includes me. It can be summed up as a greatest hits record with several remixes included. Disk one includes arguably her greatest tunes of all her three preceding albums with a previously unreleased song called 'The Same Day'. Side one also includes my favorite song by Beth, 'The Sweetest Decline'. I never seem to tire of the song and every time I hear it is like listening to it for the very first time. Disk two is even better. There are several remixes of older Beth material, a completely different version of 'Central Reservation', and older stuff by Beth with William Orbit. Also, there are some songs from Beth's very first album, 'Super Pinky Mandy'. This record is super hard to find, it was released only in Japan and only in very limited copies. I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone wanting to get acquainted with Beth's music. Buy this record and you will find yourself buying all the rest of her stuff. A winner!

How can you have a definitive collection of Beth Orton, she is just starting out, she is amazing and I don't see her slowing down quite yet; but whatever.
OK so the record label took Beth's greatest moments and put them all on one CD, PERFECT! Then the found 10 remixes, rarities, etc., and put them on a bonus disc, EXTRA PERFECT! All the Beth anyone could want, right? Wrongo! There is never enough Beth.
But Pass in time is perfect, for true fans and obviously for newcomers to her music. Its the perfect staring point. Once you hear this you'll run out and buy up all the other stuff. This 24 song compilation is worth the purchase though for long time fans, if just for the bonus CD alone.
You may already have her 3 previously released CD's but all her best are here, "She Cries Your Name," "Galaxy of Emptiness ," "Stolen Car," "Central Reservation."
The bonus CD includes the first-rate collaboration with "the Chemical Brothers" on "Where do I begin," She teams up with "Terry Callier" on "Dolphins," and "William Orbit" on "Water from a vine leaf." A reworking of "It's Not the Spotlight" just for this release.
But the biggest bonus here are 2 tracks from her "Superpinkymandy" album (now out of print), John Martyn's electronic "Don't Wanna Know 'Bout Evil" and the delicate "Where Do You Go?" . Both tracks give you a quick peek at her beginnings.
Beth is an undeniably gifted artist who has been copied by many (Dido and Sarah McLachlan, etc.). Her voice and vision cannot be duplicated though. I am sure this collection is far from conclusive, I eagerly await future releases from a shining star among clones.

I first heard Beth Orton several years ago when I got her first her album Trailer Park. Though I was blown away by several of the songs, some of them did not impress me overly. This year a friend told me about the collection and how great it was. Boy, were they right! There's not a bad song on here. Her voice is so beautiful and so emotive it's hard to not get lost in it. Songs such as Thinking About Tomorrow, Dolphins and Concrete Sky are some of my favorites, followed closely by Stars all seem to weep, She cries your name and Stolen Car. This cd is the best purchase I've made recently and will be playing for quite some time.

Beth Orton is a hell of a songwriter with a unique voice. Why she isn't Sarah McLachlan level as far as popularity is anybody's guess. "Pass In Time" is a collection for casual fans and Beth Orton collectors. (CD#1) The best songs from "Trailer Park", "Central Reservation" and EP "Best Bit". The only thing missing is the touching original version of "Central Reservation". The faster "The Then Again" version is on this set. The new pop song for this album "Same Day" is quite good. "Daybreaker" her 3rd CD gets the short end of the stick. There's only two songs - "Concrete Sky" and "Thinking About Tomorrow". "Paris Train", "Mount Washington" and "Ted's Waltz" - all outstanding numbers belong somewhere in this collection- 4 STARS. (CD#2) Remixes, "B" sides and rarities. More for established fans. The standouts are the Folk songs "Safety" and "Dolphins" - 3 STARS. (THE BOOKLET) Cool photos, extensive liner notes and musicians credits. Beth herself gives thoughts on each song. She's big on Jimi Hendrix and Rickie Lee Jones which makes her all right in my book. 5 STARS. This is a good collection, but not complete from her first three CD's. Beth later released "Comfort Of Strangers" which has a stripped down Americana flavor. For completists "The Other Side Of Daybreak" is a dance remix CD heavy on "Trip-Hop". Beth Orton is something special. This is good place to start for a newcomer.....(2/16/2011... Note: I asked the record company why no DVD, since almost everybody else has one released. They said there are no plans for a DVD. Any fans who like this artist please contact the necessary people involved to get Beth's videos & live concert out for us to watch. Beth is strong on both video and in concert. This is unusual for modern times!)
