  1. It’s a rare and amazing thing when an indie musician finds ways to keep chugging along on her own steam for years and then releases an album that brings together in the most powerful way everything she’s learned. Moncton singer/songwriter Julie Doiron has accomplished this with her eighth album.
  2. Rather than make broad statements about the nature of modern existence, Doiron takes an authorial approach, crafting brief but potent vignettes about bikes, minivans, and lovers walking through small towns.
  3. Stories of everyday life and feelings aren’t new to Doiron’s work, but the album does contain a few sonic surprises.
  4. All in all, a precious record, this.
  5. I Can Wonder toys with genres with resilience and resolve, resulting in something for everyone.
  6. Despite some engaging song-craft, however, the album overall feels lacking in real substance and its fixations leave me blase.
  7. 60
    Her lyrics remain to-the-point, just more upbeat, with her wispy, whimsical vocals sitting snugly on top of crunchy guitars. [May 2009, p.85]
