Cargo Records
Bright Lights & Filthy Nights This new album is her most personal yet, both intimate and other-worldy, underpinned with a gamut of emotions and a healthy dose of Nina's humour. The haunting Sweetest Cure wafts in on a bed of flutey tones intertwining with Nina's guitar and classically-trained Audrey Riley's cello, one of the album's defining sounds......

Bob Meyer's Folk Companion
I’m so glad that Nina Walsh has a track on her album Bright Lights and Filthy Nights called ‘Industrial Folk’, because that’s a great way of describing some of the tracks on the new disc. Nina has managed to create a very warm modern folk record that reminds me of nothing else......

Sounds XP review - Bright Lights & Filthy Nights
Having a CV that includes a tribal techno album, collaborations with great names in electronic music and an album cover with a 1950s ‘happy days’ print, Nina Walsh does not come across as your traditional folk songstress. You could expect Euphoria beats bursting out of your stereo on the inset of the first song. Yet, in the same style of Portishead’s Beth Gibbons with ‘Mysteries’, Nina Walsh has immersed herself into folk music for her album ‘Bright Lights and Filthy Nights’, creating an alluring and intriguing album with 1960s acid folk overtones brought to life by ambient and dreamy electronic melodies. Vocals and guitar are the backbone of this album, with strings appearing to enhance the evocative and intimate nature of the songs. ‘Love Leech’ and ‘Strong’ stir up the beat with catchy pop that bursts from bare guitar and viola. Nina Walsh’s name might still have been known only in specific music circles but this album has the beauty and the magic that transcends genres and should give her the popularity she deserves.

DJ Magazine Memo's Review August 2005
You might say it'd be rude to refer to a songstress like Nina Walsh as a veteran. After all you should never ask a woman her age, let alone infer that she is old enough to be a veteran. Nonetheless that is exactly what she is - in the nicest sense of the word of course! Having cut her teeth with the likes of Primal Scream, Andrew Weatherall and The Orb, lets just say she knows a song when she writes one and knows a melody when she plays one. Two qualities that come across in spades within "Memo's," an album that evokes emotive memories of Canterbury style folk, the haunting song-writing prowess of America's country greats and the subtle electronic magic of Delia Derbyshire and The Radiophonic Workshop. A fine combination if ever there was one!

2LS - further reminders
.... Two separate versions of "Tiny Reminder No. 1" by C-Pij (isn't this a label and not a band?) start and end the record. The first take assembles the digital gurgles of the original track, while C-Pij add a fingerpicked acoustic guitar, organ, and assorted keyboards to create a moving little track that almost seems like latter-era Swans. The track is enhanced further on the C-Pij "vocal mix" that closes the album, as the same instrumental backing is used behind a singer who sounds a bit like Hope Sandoval...
