  1. An exquisite collection of thoughtful lyrics and lovely harmonies.
  2. Melodic, wistful, whimsical, reflective, yet clever, the album showcases Hatfield at her peak, crafting fragile, endearing post-jangle pop songs that reveal themselves shyly and sweetly.
  3. Some of Hatfield's best work ever... [v]irtually every track here is memorable, and often heart-rending, revolving around Hatfield's strengths as an artist: her baby-girl voice; her frank, naive lyrics; and her acoustic melodies.
  4. 70
    A small, intimate record that not only reminds us of Hatfield's sweet-n-wry junior high voice, but also her mature lyric writing.
  5. 70
    A sweet-sounding album that's both melodious and multilayered.
  6. She takes a slower, more folk-rock approach to much of the material.
  7. 50
    Gentle, reflective, angsty girl'n'guitar fodder that's often more worthy than interesting. [July 2000, p.104]
  8. Beautiful Creature dwells too self-indulgently in a faux naïve girlish tone...
