Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.90) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he focus is the singer's feelings, examined rather than indulged. Tune seekers will admire many of these songs..."

Spin (p.109) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The album peaks with the bouncy, piano-driven 'Back in Your Head' and the Cars-esque 'Hop a Plane'..."
