  1. It's very catchy, but the center doesn't hold.
  2. Stoltz knows that sometimes the best way through anything, from hangovers to hopelessness, requires just good pop, a steady beat and the sound that everything’s okay. That’s what he does very well.
  3. Q Magazine

    He remains a little too in thrall to these heavy influences, despite fashioning an album of melodious songs that deserve a wider audience. [Mar 2008, p.115]
  4. In this bruised, romantic world, waking up with hangovers and noticing the empty side of the bed is the norm; for people experiencing or remembering similar situations, this is a nice aural comforter.
