    It’s an album that defines an artist, proving that the Williams name (the daughter of Bocephus, Holly comes from the Hank lineage) remains as trailblazing and unique as ever.
  2. Feb 25, 2013
    She scraped away what is expected and excavated soundscapes that left plenty of room for the ragged edges of her voice--aching and rough where the emotions set in--to stand out.

    With Williams it's classy and classic country. This is a very good album.
  4. Feb 25, 2013
    Peacock's organic, sometimes, limpid production makes damn sure that nothing gets in between them, allowing the listener to have a direct, often powerful experience with both.
  5. Feb 25, 2013
    Her music is roots-rock with an Appalachian foundation, in arrangements that rise alongside her forthright alto or let it hold its own nearly unaccompanied.
  6. 60
    Some may prefer an even more stripped down approach but these tunes benefit from a bit of polish which also helps distinguish Williams from her family’s gruffer music.
  7. Mar 29, 2013
    While her voice is adaptable, it doesn’t have enormous character or range and doesn’t have the special level of purity, richness or interesting rough edges needed to carry really simple songs on its own.
