  1. It's a beautifully understated album of personal confessions, wandering thoughts and worldly observations, all rendered with the assurance of a naturally gifted vocalist, one who clearly has no need for auto-tune or other irritating tonal tampering devices.
  2. Uncut
    This terrific record is the first on her own Everso imprint and seems to finds her more settled. [Oct 2010, p.89]
  3. Produced with exquisite balance, these ten self-penned songs reflect what Lynne's learned about the studio process in her 20 years as a recording artist.
  4. Tears, Lies, and Alibis is an album worth buying mainly for two reasons. Firstly the opening track, Rains Came. It sits in what sounds like a familiar bed, but doesn't quite go where you expect it to, and is, this time, lyrically opaque. Secondly, you can drown in her voice. It is fabulous; not an in-your-face "listen to how many octaves I can leap" sort of way, but it effortlessly convinces you she's lived this stuff, and means every word.
  5. Lynne has always been a commanding vocalist, and age has only sharpened her delivery and given her more to sing about.
  6. Her typical lyrical bent remains, but musically, Tears, Lies & Alibis is largely a spare, acoustic affair.
