  • Summary: Another solo release from the former Throwing Muses singer.

  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. Teetering between darkness and light, Hersh's somersaults have never been more compelling.
  2. As usual, the results are exquisitely unsettling... [3/9/2001, p.82]
  3. 90
    Some of the lyrics are so biting they practically melt through the speakers... [#50, p.90]
  4. Sunny Border Blue will go down as her finest album outside of the Throwing Muses because it’s her finest batch of songs.
  5. Understated but never anemic, Sunny Border Blue's tales of love, family and growth succeed largely due to Hersh's masterful acoustic guitar. [#154, p.81]
  6. Beautifully strange and richly tuneful...
  7. These are skewed, disturbing, beautiful songs...

    The extremely beautiful and ever so slightly disturbing soundtrack to my my late teens.

    Next to "Hips & Makers," her best solo LP.
