  1. Urb
    Like the Postal Service's wiser uncle, this is emo-electronic that doesn't whine, but rather approaches with a sense of musical and lyrical purpose. [Sep 2005, p.104]
  2. Alternative Press
    Nuanced, sophisticated pop somewhere between Ben Folds and Spain. [Oct 2005, p.168]
  3. Inside/Absent is a nice listen, but doesn't hint at anything greater to come-- a frustrating flaw for an album already unexcited with itself.
  4. Under The Radar
    Peterson's most emotional work to date. [#11, p.114]
  5. Paste Magazine
    The songwriting meanders sometimes, but some engaging moments... surface throughout. [Oct/Nov 2005, p.135]
  6. The production on Inside/Absent is fantastic and... there are some amazingly bare moments. And although the moments are a bit too far and few between, they are worth the wait.
