    It's very different for Juliana. It's a great pop album, but without losing all of her integrity. It's done in a tasteful, artistic way and it's a really catchy album. The voice and guitars are unchanged. It's nice to have a slightly more modern sound to things.

  1. It's a tight, cohesive record with a subtle but undeniable resonance, a record that Juliana Hatfield always seemed on the verge of delivering but finally has.
  2. Hatfield does her moody, catchy indie-pop to near-perfection after so much practice (nine solo albums during the past 16 years), and entertaining examples abound here.
  3. With her most polished, accessible production since 2000's slept-on "Beautiful Creature" and her ear for a memorable pop melody evident for the first time in years, Walk Away even stands to appeal to an audience beyond Hatfield's devoted cult following.
