    Anyone dying for ani difranco with a piano substituted for a guitar: your band has finally arrived! I was not dying for ani-piano, though, and was terrified accordingly. And just how many songs do we need about jerking off-- the album should be called "yes, vagina."

    An amped-up grotesque of torchy vaudeville and European parlor songs that starts as high-concept camp and winds up strangely illuminating. [May 2006, p.105]
  2. Yes, Virginia is hit-or-miss.
  3. Palmer's style is overwhelming: she sings her poetry with such gusto that it crosses from enthusiastic drama to verbose pantomime.
