  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. C'Mon Miracle isn't as showy as some of her previous outings, but it does show that Mirah's music works on both a large and small scale.
  7. Her songbird's voice has never sounded more beautiful than it does here.
  8. [A] ladyfolk wonder. [30 Jul 2005, p.49]
  9. 80
    An album of lightness and substance, in perfectly observed amounts. [Oct 2005, p.114]
  10. Though C'mon Miracle doesn't have the truly standout songs that made Advisory Committee so great, it is still a consistent piece of work that delivers on quality songwriting and musicianship throughout.
  11. 70
    Mirah’s ability to paste candy-pop nursery rhymes over voluptuous, macabre arrangements is truly unique and wholly un-matched.
  12. Too much of the album... drifts along in a sombre haze, languishing in a single tempo, looking up at the sky and seeing only clouds.
  13. 60
    Moments of startling beauty emerge from the fuzz-drenched experiments. [Sep 2005, p.112]
  14. There are few of the stop-in-your-tracks lines or extended metaphors of previous works.
