    As intimate and unforced an album as I've ever heard. [Nov 2006, p.104]

    World is like stumbling into a jazz café at closing time. [22 Sep 2006, p.94]
  3. Peyroux is a wonderful singer and this collection of songs is her best yet.
  4. Uncut

    Peyroux's enviable ability to sing just behind the beat conveys effortless sophistication. [Nov 2006, p.124]
  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. Fans of Norah Jones should gobble up this album, but Peyroux is no mere imitator: She's her own, very real thing.

    Perfect rainy day music. [Nov 2006, p.147]
