    A sameness of style makes things feel a little redundant, but taken in discreet portions, these tunes are unimpeachable. [No.92 p.55]

    Charmer plies the familiar recipe on a bed of pealing guitars and burbling synths. [Oct 2012, p.84]

    Charmer is in essence an Americana and power-pop confection with piano and tasteful guitars swaddled in the choicest vintage tones. [Oct 2012, p.83]

    More often than not on Charmer, though, she is able to match her ideas to music with real kick.

    She's good and snarky on Charmer. [Nov 2012, p. 101]

    The record doesn't veer far from the template Mann has established over the last decade. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.122]

    Too many tracks flirt with flat inconsequentiality, and too often the lyrics slip by without the sting of Mann's normally incisive wordsmithery.
