    Pastoral and hallucinatory is how Sioux plays it here. [Jun 2012, p.83]

    It's an album that never feels overstuffed, even at its most wandering.

    The depth of Sioux's technical skill is palpable and worth the listen.

    What's most important is that the album marks her out as a talent to watch, more than able of holding her own against such forebears and, in turning in work as simple yet creepily perfect as Homeopathic or Twin Song, proves that she's more than worthy of our love in her own right.

    Her mystical lyrics posses a beguiling aura. [Jun 2012, p.159]

    Sioux is another example of an artist who's figured out how to best complement her vocals with her music. Everything here feels connected and complete. It's just that what she's doing is nothing entirely new, which is the only thing that ends up hurting it.

    With so much good (and weird) folk music out there, it's difficult to strongly recommend something so sleepily middle-of-the-road.
