    Scattergood's voice may be an acquired taste, but she works it skillfully. [Jul 2013, p.80]

    This is a patterned Wellington boot of a record, more suited to looking boho at a festival then actually having a splash around in the swamp of the human soul. [Aug 2013, p.104]

    There are not enough personal elements on this album and too many invented ones. It's frustrating, too, because the honest snippets that occasionally poke through really shine.

    There are glints of light here and there, and some saving humour in the 26-year-old's lyrics.

    Despite those candid confessions, Arrows never bows to Scattergood’s self-indulgence, given the swooning synths and other cosmic confections.
