    Ester is very much an individualist work.

    Ester is a collection best suited to after-hours reflection, a glass of red in hand and the TV playing only static.

    With everything slathered liberally in reverb, Ester is wrong in all the right ways. [Feb 2012, p.90]

    While they still don't quite seem to be the finished article, there's plenty of promise.

    This is more adventurous fare but never forgoes its footing in melody land--well, with the exception of the off-putting "Rolling," a short track that unfortunately opens the record and sounds like a symphony warm-up with six instruments headed in different directions.

    Ester doesn't quite have a narrow enough scope for us to be able to say that Trailer Trash Tracys have a sound that's all their own, but they're close to finding their voice, and with a little more refinement it will come out, not loudly, but clearly.

    Most of the songs on Ester are like partially frozen ice cubes tossed into a drink on a warm day: they work for a little while, but they never turn into something truly solid, and end up dissolving pretty quickly.
