    It's a boldly contemporary record whose wily 70s spirit isn't lost amid the fuzz.

    Her uncommon, even singular approach to singing, recording, and writing, remains fully in evidence here.

    The album is brave in its fragility and sincerity; it’s not for the cynical. But it’s not naïve, either.

    At times a bit too slick and overproduced, her new songs are rooted in the same mysticism and concern for humanity that marked her early work, except now she’s updated her sound with contributions from musicians such as Julia Holter and Ramona Gonzalez from Nite Jewel.

    The Soul of All Natural Things realises her intent wonderfully, its gorgeously crafted pastoral songs a gentle invocation to inner peace.

    There are a few moments of longueurs, where the songs come off a little too session muso. But this new, becalmed Perhacs reveals a clear eco-political message articulated with subtlety and nuance. [Apr 2014, p.79]

    The album would have benefited from playing on that edge; instead, it rests on the laurels of its earthy prettiness.
