    This time Baird's own compositions dominate. [Nov 2011, p.100]

    There's a little more in the mix here [than in her solo debut album], dabs of lap steel on Babylon and elsewhere, gentle harp flourishes on Song For Next Summer, but this is barely less lovely than its predecessor. [Nov. 2011, p. 127]

    Season Of Earth is music rooted deep in the black, black earth and whose only limit is the blue, blue sky. [Oct 2011, p.50]

    Despite her love of folk traditions, and a classic voice, Baird keeps these songs from ever feeling dated.

    Her tender songcraft grows stronger.

    Seasons on Earth is a poetic, thoroughly engaging set from a now-mature songwriter, whose confidence in her musical language is as poetic as it is authoritative.

    Meg Baird, formerly the frontperson of Philadelphia-based psychedelic folk-rockers Espers, is left a little exposed on her own solo album.
