    Stephens' voice is, as ever, quite compelling, as capable of guts and blues as of delicate trilling flourishes. She sounds stronger and surer than ever here.

    Heartfelt, ragged, and stoic.

    Stephens fronts the group with aplomb, with her Joni Mitchell-esque vocals floating through the album's 11 tracks like smoke from a campfire.
  4. It's when I keep in mind the idea of Pull It Together being an album for her daughter that I enjoy the album most, as it's in this light that it sounds at its most charming and likeable.

    Pull It Together is an album that wants to sound pleasant but over time reveal[s] a shadowy unpleasantness underneath. But none of this is pulled tight enough to snap, and the edges aren't sharp enough to cut beneath the surface.
