  1. Phillips' fragile, tender songs are well suited to his uneasy protagonists. [5 Mar 2004, p.69]
  2. 90
    A fabulous, strangely soothing listen. [Feb 2004, p.100]
  3. 80
    Arguably slight at first, it rewards repeat listening as its seductive, heartfelt stories unfurl. [Mar 2004, p.90]
  4. This is smart, literate stuff painted on a rich canvas of pedal steel, ukulele, upright bass, strings and soft drums.
  5. [His] gravel-like vocals envelop the album, while his well-travelled eyes ensure the lyrics are filled with knowing experience. [Mar 2004, p.109]
  6. 70
    His carefully constructed tales are accompanied by a warm intimacy, the folky-edge only reinforcing the emphasis on the stories.
  7. A boringly functional record full of tediously average songwriting.
