"... As his performances on keyboards and celeste help set the atmosphere, Drake reaches for a perfectly artful reflection on loss and loneliness and succeeds wonderfully. ..." (http://www.allmusic.com)

"...Compared to the gloomy, vinegary, autumnal Five Leaves Left and the reportedly stark Pink Moon, Drake's second album is a relatively pleasant collection. "Bryter Layter" and "Sunday" are light, carefree flute instrumental, and the cantering Hazey Jane II" is positively brisk (though qualified by some disturbing lyrics). "Northern Sky" gently details how a loved one has enhanced his appreciation of life. Even in his best moods, though, Drake seems to be reaching out from a position of isolation to a like soul, as in "Hazey Jane I": "Do you feel like a remnant of something that's past?" More characteristic is the intensely considered solitude of "Poor Boy," "One of These Things First" (a light waltz about possibilities dismissed) and "Fly," which features John Cale's moaning viola. Whether obscurely introspective or groping outward, Drake seems to be communing with a pantheistic spirit; he consistently charts this communion with stirring empathy and authenticity — but not clarity. It's a measure of his instinct for maintaining a sense of mystery that Bryter Layter's reflections are as ephemeral as a man's breath on a mirror..." (Read More: http://www.rollingstone.com)
