    Sweet, spooky harmonies, partly inspired by the death of a close relative, given a naked acoustic production. [May 2003, p.125]
  2. It's an uneven set, relying strongly on her performance to carry the songs forward. [#229, p.68]
  3. The songs, while as elegant and naturally paced as they've ever been, tend to merely drift along.
  4. It doesn't take long for her aimless acoustic picking and postgraduate lyrical poetry to dissipate into a dull gray haze.
