    As much as The Deep Field concerns itself with Joan Wasser's considerable emotional needs, this is not a self-absorbed record. It's a big, open-hearted statement on the best way love in a world where "good living requires smiling at strangers."

    Even if, as a whole, The Deep Field isn't quite as rewarding as Wasser's first two records, it's an altogether different, diverse and challenging experience. Thankfully, that voice remains intact: vulnerable but somehow powerful.

    There is slick virtuosity to all the playing here but it is her warm, witty presence that shines through. [Feb 2011, p.118]

    It's a solid and honourable return for a singer who has rarely disappointed.

    The Deep Field finds her alone but not lonely, still searching for something and finding beauty and even happiness, if not answers.

    With The Deep Field, Wasser proves herself a compelling songwriter in American music whose ambition never eclipses her striking talents. [May 2011, p.85]

    It's when Wasser puts her voice front and center that The Deep Field collapses in on itself.
