"[This] is a really, really good album...very deep, very brilliant."
"Her voice is an alluringly warm, friendly instrument—sweet without becoming cloying, tender and heartfelt and rich."
"Country, folk, and torchy pop gather like old friends in this San Francisco songstress's burnished tunes. Centered on softly insistent vocals (somewhere between Aimee's and Emmylou's), Laube's songs layer in plucky mandolin, quavering slide, and enough good faith to keep the campfire burning late."
"Anna Laube makes intimate, heartfelt songs rooted in traditional Americana. With a strong voice reminiscent of Neko Case or Jenny Lewis, Laube sings with a slight but refreshing country twang over a mix of blues, country and folk."
"You'll hear bits of Aimee Mann, Margo Timmins and Norah Jones here and there, but overall it's a lyrical voice that's wholly original."
