  1. King's songs are mainly to blame, sugary sub-Lisa Loeb numbers that have arrived 10 years too late to soundtrack Dawson's Creek plot twists.

    With too many pastel-shaded instrumentals, the album lacks the previous album's molten touch and her live show's surging spirit. [June 2008, p.114]
  3. It's a finely textured, quietly hypnotic collection showcasing her guitar chops inside mellifluous, complex songs. [Aug 2008, p.139]
  4. While Dreaming of Revenge is a frustrating Swiss cheese in execution, its strongest passages still indicate that King might yet grow into one of the most intriguing instrumental musicians of her generation.
