From the title on, everything about this album proclaims a sharp intelligence. An album of infinite richness, Climate proves that idiosyncrasy isn’t dead yet.****

Her performance is outstanding, vivacious and forceful.

Gillespie, who joins Bob Dylan’s lyrical bite and languid delivery to the forthrightness of Joni Mitchell, with a little rap-like percussiveness thrown in, is an original … an incisive guitarist as well as an expressive singer, she’s unquestionably going places. ***
The Guardian, John Fordham, 20th Jan 2011
‘lovely, poetic…Gillespie’s second album is so strikingly fine that you wonder how you can have missed her first one’.
The Mail on Sunday, Jan 2011 ****
Lyrical grit.. and beautifully controlled associative word strings all delivered with her distinctive vocal mixture of dark romanticism and punkish attitude.

Haunting tunes and striking lyrics…yearningly pretty and bitter sweet. *****
