Alternative PressMore lively and consistent than 2006's "Rabbit Fur Coat," Lewis's second solo disc builds like a whisky buzz. [Nov 2008, p.155]
The problem then is one of staying power--Lewis does such a good job of nailing choice sounds and styles from pop's past that you can't help getting reeled in right away; only upon later reflection do you realize that much of her success lies in evoking something else great rather than achieving a greatness more uniquely her own.

But in all the songs we can hear two things: she has grown, (but that doesn't mean she isn't lovely anymore, on the contrary, you'll fall in love with her again and again while listening to this album), and the other thing is that in all the tracks there's a Californian atmosphere that gives the album an homogeneous sound… Collapse

KristinYMar 31, 2009I find most tracks on this album unlistenable. It's a severely disappointing follow-up to Rabbit Fur Coat. I'm not sure who she;s I find most tracks on this album unlistenable. It's a severely disappointing follow-up to Rabbit Fur Coat. I'm not sure who she;s trying to be, but Jenny's voice isn't built for those high notes.
