    It's a minor miracle she's been able to make room for another Lavender Diamond outing. But when the results sparkle this brilliantly, the multi-tasking seems exceedingly worth it.

    This long-labored album is a thoughtful and contemplative breed of off-kilter pop that becomes both more interesting and increasingly complex with repeat listening.

    The backing is beautifully understated but it's Becky Stark's pure, unaffected folksy sigh that's a thoroughly comforting presence throughout. [Dec 2012, p.73]

    These new songs are shadowy and spacy, a little bit lost, maybe even a tad sexy despite themselves--all brighter and richer than their predecessors.

    There's a soaring, unfettered confidence that Stark puts to amazingly good use on this record. [Oct/Nov 2012, p.129]

    The tension between light and dark is this album's masterstroke. [Oct 2012, p.104]

    'Incorruptible Heart' is a frustrating listen. You are left with the sense that there is a brilliant pop group waiting to burst out but for the most part, they are sadly suffocated by the arrangements.
