    Features more of the uncomplicated Californian country-rock fare that was hinted at by the cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Save Me A Place" on last year's Between EP. [Jul 2006, p.116]
  2. It's a compelling, forward-thinking album that's as likely to please fans of melodic indie-pop and roots-rock as it is fans of the current crop of folk troubadours.
  3. Vetiver makes first rate folk pop music that can be as fine as a walk on a spring day with brightly colored wildflowers mixed in the meadow, sweet smells in the placid breezes, and newly hatched insects flying by.
  4. New Musical Express (NME)

    Cabic's alt.blues vocals sometimes sound disinterested, but they merely act as a device for the music to take over the listener. [1 Jul 2006, p.36]
  5. Really, though, Cabic needs more “Red Lantern Girls,” a gauzy folk workout that hides and seeks until a brutish electric guitar prods the rhythm and heads for higher ground. It is everything the rest of the album is not: aggressive, terse, and surprising.

    What I like to call a "go-to" album, especially for those headphonic moments of wistfulness and nostalgia. Certainly not innovative, but What I like to call a "go-to" album, especially for those headphonic moments of wistfulness and nostalgia. Certainly not innovative, but gorgeous, impeccably arranged songs top to bottom. For me, an early contender for album of the year. Full Review »

    Many songs on here are good, forward thinking indie-folk - while some other songs are underdeveloped.
