  1. The instrumentation is luscious and variable, the harmonies are wonderful, the lyrics are solid and compelling for the most part, and with such a lovely blend of slower and up-tempo tracks to choose from, Overlook is something you definitely don't want to do in regards to what might just be considered Maria Taylor's finest solo effort to date.

    This is a band album, and a solid one at that.

    Overlook is her best, most animated collection in years.

    Overlook is not her best record, but is an encouraging return to a sensibility marked by deliberation and sensuousness in equal measure.

    Taylor is gifted, and capable of moments of arresting near-brilliance. But though she's been a professional musician for nearly 15 years, she still hasn't really announced who she is.
