    It ultimately presents as bleak a view of life as any of Green’s albums, while also being extremely sweet about it.

    Even if they quit after this, the album will stand as one of the best duet records of the era.

    Like Arab Strap with bellbottoms and flower necklaces in place of the drum machine, Shapiro and Green are a match made in heaven who explore every corner of romantic hell.

    This 10-track ode to the joys of a sad, sweet, mellow but occasionally dark and atmospheric love song is arranged with tender loving care and produced with just enough reverb to remind you of girl-group classics

    The subtle, sleepy, silkily textured likes of 'Pity Love' and the spry, sly 'Just To Make Me Feel Good' are a sweet breeze.

    These aren't songs meant to jump out at you, but spend some time with them and little illuminations flicker to life.

    Lyrically trying to hard, and musically under-achieving, it amounts to no more than a shonky indie take on something that, when the pairing is right, can be truly magical. [Feb 2013, p.105]
