    The album is laden with a nostalgic longing that’s never as compelling as the cinematic leanings.

    The Deserters produces a gently psychedelic kind of romantic chamber-pop. [Jan 2013, p.113]

    Now and then she mistakes bland tastefulness for classy restraint; otherwise, subtlety is The Deserters' chief charm.

    It's all warmly wrought and pretty, if a trifle insubstantial at times.
  5. It is a lush thing that, were we writing for a certain type of women’s mag, might have us reaching for words such as "candles" and "bubble bath."

    Guests Toy do their best to push things forward, but their propulsive ways merely emphasise Zeffira's absent voice. [Jan 2013, p.83]
