  1. An unseemly, almost unnecessary foray into heavy metal and hard rock, especially in light of her success on the acoustic side.
  2. The music is occasionally difficult to embrace, to say the least...
  3. Messy, noisy, directionless, and painfully shy on both tunes and purpose... and winds up sounding a bit like a parody.
  4. It’s easily the weakest album in her career and sounds even worse when compared to the subtle path of Beautiful Creature.

    I think this is one of Juliana's best albums. I'm sure it goes over the heads of those who just want to hear her cute little voice over some pretty music. She is so much more than that. The ideas in this album (lyrically) are amazing and are what make the album...scary white trash breeders! Expand

    Raw and unbashedly noisy...it's Hatfield at her crankiest. "My Protegee" could be one of her best songs to date.

    I bought this album because it seemed like an interesting concept, and as a sign of respect for an artist I truly enjoy and admire. It suuuuuucked. Ms. Hatfield ought to give me a free copy of In Exile Deo. Expand
