    The more one hears, the stranger the songs sound. There is more going on than what initially meets the ear.

    An album that bears repeated listens, Summer Skin is nothing less than extraordinarily affecting.

    Cook's latest effort is smart and heartfelt. [Oct 2012, p.75]

    Cook is never overpowered by Robert Plant or other cameos by locals Ben Kweller and Patty Griffin.

    Top notch session musicians including guitarist David Garza and Me'Shell N'Degeocello on bass along with a few namedropping guests such as Robert Plant and Patty Griffin help flesh out these eleven often moody, reflective tunes, making this her most accomplished album to date.
