  1. Learn to Sing Like a Star was certainly worth the wait, and if fans will listen closely enough, they'll understand that Hersh's sophistication as both a singing poet and composer has grown almost immeasurably.
  2. It has the ambition, enthusiasm and intensity of an artist still pushing the envelope. [27 Jan 2007]
  3. A rich and rewarding album from an artist who - thankfully - keeps on evolving in subtle and exciting ways.
  4. Hersh has made great personal strides since branching off on her own.
  5. Further proof of Hersh's glittering place in the rock firmament after two decades of making music. [Mar 2007, p.112]
  6. Hersh produces the record herself, and she doesn't do her compositions any favors.... Still, her voice has that edgy intimacy it's always had.
  7. Learn to Sing Like a Star threads together Hersh's myriad musical guises while striving for some of the immediacy and distinctive yelp of her Throwing Muses heyday. It mostly works. [Mar 2007, p.69]
