  1. Subtle exercises in pushing genre boundaries, these (mostly self-penned) songs deal in profundity without resort to cliche, and they deserve better than to have the life polished out of them.

    Those who want their Emmylou full of sweet, sad longing will play a quarter of this album to death.... Elsewhere, there's righteous anger and an assertiveness and sexuality to the love songs. [Nov 2003, p.128]
  3. Even breezy pop songs like "Jupiter Rising" and timeless standards like "Plaisir D'Amour" gain profundity from Harris and [producer Malcolm] Burn's genteel approach.
