    I love this album. I love Rilo Kiley, and when I heard that Blake Sennet was doing this side project, I knew that I would love it. And I do.

  1. The poetry of pain is so strong, and mixed with superbly produced music that doesn’t take a nanosecond for granted.
  2. "Me First" may not be greater than the sum of its parts, but it certainly is equal to them, which is a lot. [1 Mar 2004]

    The mournful harmonies and orchestral sweetening on some tracks... spread a seductively decadent sheen over the oddly uplifting proceedings. [27 Feb 2004, p.98]
