  1. There are no shocks or surprises, but instead, How I Long... thrills us softly, its tiny layers and details all intricately woven together into a cohesive and aesthetically delightful tapestry.
  2. How I Long to Feel That Summer in My Heart further underscores how brilliantly anomalous and unfashionably brilliant GZM are.
  3. 90
    Their most affecting and cohesive statement to date. [Oct 2001, p.108]
  4. The aged authenticity of these songs comes so easily that you'd be forgiven for thinking that they discovered the formula.
  5. This is one striking album from start to finish.
  6. The voices of Euros and Megan Childs are a breath of mountain-fresh air, while the chamber-meets-country pop summons the spirit of Nick Drake. [#32, p.56]
  7. A testament to the influences of their youth; echoes of Lennon and McCartney, Simon and Garfunkel, Nick Drake, and Fairport Convention glide through the album before tiptoeing into a corner and reappearing a few tracks later.
