  1. Her talent and pain are equally raw and equally audible.
  2. Q Magazine

    These are genuinely moving, but a change in pace wouldn't have gone amiss. [Oct 2012, p.98]
  3. Uncut

    An oddly one-note follow-up. [Sep 2012, p.76]
  4. Mojo

    Her tendency to over-infuse them with the weepies neuters what otherwise be gleaming moments. [Sep 2012, p.94]

    Francis is a trick-free troubadour and for all The Remedy's rather monotone approach, there may not be a more personal album in 2012.
  6. Solid singer-songwriter fare with more longing than your teenage years.
  7. Descriptors are hardly necessary for any of these songs because they're all a stone's toss from one another in pretty much every respect.

    The gripes of her debut album--chiefly that the quality of her songs didn't always match the strength of her voice--again prevail here.

    It's satisfying enough, and the lyrics hint at some intriguing darkness. It just needs a little more bite.
