    The 10 tracks breeze past in 29 minutes, and the singer-songwriter doesn’t waste any of them.

    Push Any Button, although fleeting in length, is a testament to an artist who is so capable of keeping you guessing every step along the fascinating way.

    Push Any Button is what Sam Phillips fans have come to rely on over her course of her career: a perfectly crafted album that overflows with melodic hooks, musical grace, lyrical insight, and emotional depth.

    Unlike other singer/songwriters, she consistently pushes her and her audience’s boundaries with music that’s as catchy as it is intriguing and idiosyncratic.

    She jumps around genres like a Bowie-esque chameleon, but this new effort is a staunch improvement from some of her musical wanderlust.

    It's an insinuating set, bordering on morose in places. [Aug 2013, p.74]

    She doesn’t capture that magic consistently on the rest of the album, though, which leaves Push Any Button feeling jumpy and unfocused.
