  1. A record lacking in a substantial amount of soul, grit and sensuality.
  2. It's still very plainly the Dulli Show, placing his cigarette-stained voice and oversized heartache front-and-center.
  3. Dulli sounds like he's performing at a Sunday pub gig. [Oct 2004, p.130]
  4. 50
    His interpretations seem both timid and presumptuous. [Oct 2004, p.120]

    Brilliantly cohesive for a covers album. The choice of songs is brave - esp. Hyperballad and Strange Fruit - but somehow Dulli pulls it off. Brilliantly cohesive for a covers album.

    Some of GD at his intensest. The rendition of Please Stay is simply beautiful

    Unbelievable record. There's no question Dulli's got soul.
