Under The RadarToo often Combinations sounds like a retread of Eisley's debut but with a different backing track. [summer 2007, p.73]
Q MagazineIt is just that, a combination of converging influences, namely Evanescence and The Cranberries, their propensity for choral harmonies ratcheting up the twee factor exponentially. [Oct 2007, p.109]

BryanB.Aug 19, 2007Look...I adore these girls and their talent and their character and their obvious love of life and the arts. I even pre-ordered Look...I adore these girls and their talent and their character and their obvious love of life and the arts. I even pre-ordered "Combinations" and honestly will continue to do so with their music. I saw them live in Nashville last week and they were amazing. Nevertheless, there is no way that I can say that this cd is anything but a step back from "Room Noises." And it kills me to say that too because I know that I have no idea the amount of love and energy the DuPrees put into this cd. I understand all-too-well, having been listening intently to music almost all of my 45 years, that artists have to change and grow and all that, but gone from "Combinations" almost entirely are those moments of melodic magic and transcendence that was so compelling on their first effort. Even the up-beat stuff on "Room Noises" such as "Plenty of Room," and "My Lovely" out-shine the rocking moments of "Combinations." And the ballads of "Combinations" seem forced and almost by-the-numbers when compared to the sheer, spontaneous muse that flowed from such songs as "Lost at Sea," and "One Day I Slowly Floated Away," and "Brightly Wound." The only real moment on "Combinations" that leaves me smiling with it's genius is "Come Clean." Having said that, I find all of the 1st 6 tracks of "Combinations to be enjoyable enough and even good, but that wasn't what I was hoping for. To write melodic ballads that are soul-inspiring, healing, and achingly joyful is a rare, rare gift...a gift which The DuPrees have been obviously given. And even if they feel niched or labeled by continuing to craft such songs, I think the world is a much better place for such craft.… Collapse
