    Freed from Torquil Campbell's mannered indie melodrama, she gives full rein to her inner country girl. [Jan 2010, p. 121]
  2. The music lover in Millan finds that stability in other people’s songs.
  3. Millan's "plain jane" delivery may be occasionally sleep inducing, but it's comfort, not boredom that delivers the serotonin.
  4. Her sound sure is pretty, but it doesn’t hook you in the way, say, Cat Power’s self-destruction does.
  5. 60
    The songs barely disturb the dust in the room as they gently tip-toe about, Millan's lazy drawl far less deliberate than the clipped enunciation she often exercises on Stars' chamber pop. [Feb 2010, p. 102]
  6. In comparison, the second solo album from Broken Social Scene/Stars vocalist Amy Millan can't help but seem just a little routine. [Jan 2010, p. 126]
  7. 50
    Masters of the Burial lacks the character to be more than the sum of its lovely parts: fiddles, regret, and a pretty voice.
