    Déjà vu, ambition, whatever be damned. No help may be coming, but they don't need it in the first place.

    No Help Coming is an improvement over Golightly's previous work with the Brokeoffs, but this music still doesn't capture this gifted artist at her best.

    It's always impressive when the ballads on an album neither slow down its pace nor detract from the rest of the album. It's a true testament to how well-rounded this album really is.

    Lawyer Dave, a more focused singer and an able musician, holds down the drumming and guitar solos. He prevents the songs from falling apart, while she makes them strange.

    Fourth album from the Kensington-born, Georgia-based garage rock queen's latest incarnation. [Jun 2011, p.100]

    No help coming consequently offers a welcome contrast to murder-ballad reciting neo-folkers. [Jun 2011, p.116]

    The snarling Creedence-style rock is typical, but Golightly also does beautifully as a balladeer on "River Of Tears." [Jun 2011, p.85]
