  1. It's classy, but also honest. Not a single emotion seems overplayed or exaggerated; you'll dance and sway to it because each song feels as organic as life, and the life it documents is nicely lit.
  2. Mirah, it appears, has made the album we've been waiting for.
  3. She creates an atmosphere of such intimate ease, you feel as if she's singing for you alone. [4 June 2004, p.80]
  4. Her most self-assured release yet, instantly inviting and comfortable, brimming with a confidence that breeds fast familiarity.
  5. This is the most consistently enjoyable album in her young catalogue.
  6. 70
    Mirah’s ability to paste candy-pop nursery rhymes over voluptuous, macabre arrangements is truly unique and wholly un-matched.
  7. There are few of the stop-in-your-tracks lines or extended metaphors of previous works.

    This is her most complete record. All of the strengths honed on previous recordings are brought to the forefront here, featuring tasteful production (as opposed to the underproduced "You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This" and the overwhelmingly layered "Advisory Committee") and beautiful performances. She cuts the bullshit on "C'mon Miracle" and shows that she is indeed an artist in her own right. Expand

    songwriting shines through the delicate swamp of down-tempo indie folk.

    Great album. Very refreshing-- out of the norm.

    It's not as good as her second disc, which was not as good as her first, but it's still pretty good. If you're a fan of hers you'll still like it. It grew on me quite a bit with repeated listens. Expand
