  1. 100
    As intimate and unforced an album as I've ever heard. [Nov 2006, p.104]
  2. World is like stumbling into a jazz café at closing time. [22 Sep 2006, p.94]
  3. 80
    Peyroux's enviable ability to sing just behind the beat conveys effortless sophistication. [Nov 2006, p.124]
  4. Peyroux is a wonderful singer and this collection of songs is her best yet.
  5. The delicateness of Half the Perfect World is certainly nice, but Peyroux seems to be using it as a device to hide behind instead of an actual expression of feeling.
  6. Perfect rainy day music. [Nov 2006, p.147]
  7. Fans of Norah Jones should gobble up this album, but Peyroux is no mere imitator: She's her own, very real thing.
  8. Much of it is polite and pretty. [21 Sep 2006, p.88]
  9. Only a tender take on Tom Waits' "(Looking For) The Heart of a Saturday Night" gives Peyroux the glimmer of modernity Perfect World so desperately craves. [Oct 2006, p.80]
