    It's a bit left of the middle, but there is no getting away from the fact that this is a folky record. It takes happy go lucky story telling folk and turns it on it's side. Conor Oberst collaborates on the cover of Handle With Care, and Jenny Lewis comes from a similar school of song writing. If you like him, you'll like this record. It's no classic or must have, but it is worth a listen.

    A dozen remarkable tracks. [Feb 2006, p.78]
  2. She is grappling with issues of faith, but she is charmingly skeptical. [28 Jan 2006]
  3. You know it's special from the first bars.
