    If you were expecting another rock album, you will be upset! This an excellent acoustic album though. Boasting melancholy and floating melodies with sonically pleasing acoustic guitar accompaniment, this is a treat for the listener. The more you listen the more you will enjoy this album. It has slowly become my favorite by them.

    Still, like the lovable Muppet, Flaws is just a little too green to have any major impact.

    Ultimately, a steelier grip might be preferable to their warm handshake. [Summer 2010, p.77]
  3. Steadman's vocal stands out--its tremulous quality may be a hangover from, as the story goes, embarrassment at being overheard singing as a kid, but it heightens the sense of an authentically troubled spirit exorcising his demons in the quietly devastating manner of a Nick Drake.
