    Lerche has a pop manual the size of the OED, and he's not the least bit bashful about using it. [Apr 2004, p.86]
  2. A breezy, unexpectedly enchanting CD. [12 Mar 2004, p.112]
  3. 80
    Think swoonsome pop at its most non-cynical but with a left-field twist. [Aug 2004, p.98]
  4. If the listener isn't eventually caught in swoons, at the least he will respect the degree of Lerche's refined artifice.
  5. Two Way Monologue is an evident progression forward, but not forward enough. It is extremely similar to Faces Down and ultimately leads to disappointment.
  6. 60
    The songs are a mite pretentious. [Sep 2004, p.99]
  7. Most of the tracks here fit into various categories of coffee table mood music; Lerche has a great knack for melodies, but seemingly not much of an idea what to do with them once he’s got them all lined up.
