Sealed, Long Out Of Print 1999 Original With Bonus 7" Single. “There Are A Couple Of Concessions To The Late '90s, Primarily In The Presence Of Subdued, Vaguely Hip-Hop-Influenced Rhythms That Underpin Some Mid-Tempo Cuts, But Breakdown Is The Work Of An Artist Who Is Assured And Comfortable, Meaning That She's Not Afraid To Play Straight-Ahead Music Or To Delve Deep Into Her Soul. Consequently, It's The Most Intimate Album She's Ever Made. A By-Product Of This Development Is That The Record Isn't As Visceral Or Immediate As Her Earlier Work, And Some Of The Songs Need A Few Plays Before They Sink In Completely. That May Mean That Some Listeners Will Not Have The Patience To Truly Hear Breakdown For What It Is -- A Low-Key But Revealing Record That Is Intimate Even When It Rocks The Hardest. But Those Who Do Will Discover That Its Best Moments -- Whether It's "Scarecrow," Her Moving Tribute To Hate-Crime Victim Matthew Shepard, Or The Nakedly Autobiographical "Mama I'm Strange" -- Find Etheridge Exploring New, Refreshingly Honest Territory That Suits This Subdued Musical Style Quite Well.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide.
