  1. As hope, there are revealing looks at Smith's developments as a writer. [#17, p.87]

    New Moon sounds less like a pile of outtakes than an official album released in a parallel universe.
  3. Smith's trademark combination of breathy - almost whispered - vocals, deceptively resilient acoustic melodies, and sombrely introspective lyrics, is shown off to sufficiently good advantage here to make New Moon a worthy companion piece to 1995's Elliott Smith and 1997's Either/Or.
