  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.
  2. Lynn Teeter Flower... delivers on the promise of 11:11.

    Lynn Teeter Flower finds Taylor shaving away some of the layers from her solo debut 11:11 for more subtle ornamentation and experimentation. [Apr 2007, p.182]
  4. Uncut

    A winning hybrid of indie neuroses and Brill Building craft, precision and intimacy. [Apr 2007, p.120]
  5. Spin

    Her vocals are both pitch-perfect and emotionally resonant. [Apr 2007, p.96]

    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]
  7. Taylor sounds too much like thousands of other winsome distaff troubadours.

If you can't be fair, don't review the CD. This CD is lighter on the electronics than 11:11 is, but that works in its favor, because it doesn't overwhelm her folk, pop, and blues stylings. And her voice sounds as seductive as ever. Full Review »
