UncutThe 21-year-old with the bell-clear vocals scarcely puts a foot wrong, sliding easily between solemn country balladry and snappy country rock. [Sep 2010, p.90]
Delivering on that precocious promise, Rose's debut long-player actually reins in her EP's feistier extremes somewhat to deliver 10 tracks of timeless, simply adorned (albeit by some dextrously restrained Music Row stalwarts) song-craft which, while they certainly doff a 10-gallon hat to the country canon, never seem constrained by Nashville tropes, old or new.
MojoA missed opportunity, but there's still plenty of time to get back on track. [Sep 2010, p.92]

On the other hand, the albums opening track, Learning To Ride, is gorgeous. Caitlin is at her best when she is not too serious, because drama really doesn't fit her voice. When she channels that Velvet Underground / Nashville 60's atmosphere, Caitlin is adorable.… Expand
