AllMusic/Heather Phares: “The album’s big, glossy production and
preponderance of drum machines and keyboards inches Spektor toward
territory that isn’t exactly mainstream, but is closer to a more conventional
adult alternative singer/songwriter sound… The album feels like getting to
really know someone: at first, it’s polite and a little restrained, but then its
real personality, with all of its charming idiosyncrasies, finally reveals itself.”
