  1. Everything moves in slow motion, as if that lent profundity to the proceedings, and even then the vocals rarely keep time. Perhaps Holland believes that singing off the beat creates tension, but it merely diffuses what little energy these songs possess.

    Paste magazine needs to stop the indie-snobbery, holier-than-thou attitude, and appreciate the music for what it is. Holland is increadibly unique in this era of over-produced pop divas...her voice is heavenly and her songs showcase her gift for simple melodies and lyrical creativity. I love this chick, and those who disagree and just arrogant music snobs or just plain idiots. Full Review »

    Sorry, don't get it. There is a kind of 'one note' feel to this. Crush in the Ghetto is very alluring but there is nothing else of that standard. I bought the album on the basis of that song AND the other reviews on this site. Maybe I've missed something. Full Review »

    If your into pop music I would say this is not for you, however if you are looking to hear something different and can appreciate talent give it a listen. Even better if you like the alblum see her live..still one the best live shows I've seen. Full Review »
