  1. Throughout, a cutback on shimmery electronic effects results in a lived-in sound; there's a shabby chic-ness to these songs, and also a believability.

    Her vocals are both pitch-perfect and emotionally resonant. [Apr 2007, p.96]
  3. With more listens, the textured dynamics of Lynn become more apparent; what becomes equally apparent, however, is the lack of dynamism in Taylor's voice. [#17, p.93]
  4. Like Oberst, the strength of her songwriting sometimes overshadows the rather interesting things going on in terms of production.
  5. There's nothing here that feels truly essential. [Apr 2007, p.122]
  6. Lynn Teeter Flower isn’t bad by any means. It’s just too safe, too predictable.
