  1. Donelly shows a grace on this disc that a lot of people her age aren't capable of.
  2. The low-key context suits her well. [6 Aug 2004, p.80]

    A stripped down, more acoustic Tanya Donelly swirls and haunts her way through this wonderful set, providing a varied lineup of songs reflecting on her home, her career, and herself. It makes an excellent compliment to her wilder, more ecclectic days in Throwing Muses, the Breeders, and Belly. Full Review »

    I'm happy for Tanya that she's feeling content with her married life and motherhood. But I must say it makes for a boring album to listen to. The vocals are mixed so high that I feel just plain uncomfortable with the intimacy of it all. The unvarying acoustic instruments and slow tempo throughout also make the songs hard to get into. I like a little more variety, personally. Unfortunately Tanya wants to go into a more country-ish direction. I miss the alternative and I miss the rock. Full Review »
