  1. Her chin-up ditties don't connect every time, but her abandonment of home recording will win new listeners anyway.
  2. Achieve[s] the rare bliss of adult pop wisdom. [8 Oct 2004, p.114]
  3. 80
    Dawson tunefully balances girlish zeal with womanly maturity. [Nov 2004, p.132]
  4. Hidden Vagenda is elegantly constructed and outwardly naive, but it lacks a consistent underlying honesty.
  5. This approach leads either to a powerful, palpable intensity that's unremitting, or to a suffocating bathos that's maddeningly distracting from the words of the songs themselves, which ultimately prove inventive and compelling by anyone's standards.
  6. Adopts a fuller, more polished sound than her earlier work, but her songwriting is just as innocent and heartfelt-sounding as ever.
  7. Delivers deeply personal, uncompromising songwriting tucked into intelligent and clever lyrics. [#8, p.114]
