    Laura Cantrell's crystal clear vocals are beautiful, reminiscent of Kitty Wells. This album's Big City meditations evoke traditional country, bluegrass, honky talk, and the shimmery melodies of 60's California country acts.

    Cantrell, with a voice reminiscent of Alison Krauss and melodies much the same, was born for this stuff. [24 Jun 2005, p.162]
  3. Like its predecessors, it's full of sweetly sung melodies and deceptively simple arrangements of originals and lovingly chosen covers.
