    I think it's safe to say that this album is not anything near what she accomplished on her debut, "Suburban Nature". While it's not the same, that's not to say it isn't equally good. She's definitely grown and matured and her music shows that.

    The fact that Jaffe seems to be experimenting with musical possibilities is both the strength and weakness of the disc. It keeps the listener from getting bored. However, it also keeps Jaffe from probing very deep into any particular territory.

    [The songs] shows, ultimately, the heights to which Jaffe can rise with time. [Jun 2012, p.158]

    Through producer John Congleton's flourishes you can still imagine Jaffe strumming the songs on an acoustic guitar, each heartbreaking love song written for the same audience who embraced the subtle desperation of Suburban Nature.
