    Asher’s deft work provides breathing room between the instruments, Martin’s subtle playing leaves the showboating behind and the trio delivers a modest gem.

    It may seem an unlikely match, but Martin and Brickell bring out the best in each other. [Jun 2013, p.93]

    The songs tap folk tradition without getting stuck in it; they’re full of struggling lovers, an ’84 Ford, a baby in a suitcase and some memorable melodies.

    This album clearly had the potential to be more than merely enjoyable. Its failure to be something greater sticks in the craw.

    Precious and self-indulgent, this disc is bound for the sale rack at Starbucks.

    This is a deceptively simple sounding album, but don't let that fool you.

Steve Martin and Edie Brickell work very well together, and the songs are catchy and full of emotion without being over-produced.

    It's hard not to smile with listening to this album. Easily one of the best albums I've listened to this year from any genre of music.
