Q (p.136) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[U]nbearably stark, its gentle banjos and violins summoning images of scorched prairies and deserted saloons. 'Hello Love' is a spectacularly desolate ballad..."
CMJ (p.51) - "Frazey Ford belts out each number with equal parts pop sensibility and soul..."
Dirty Linen (p.45) - "These women have discipline, taste, and talent....All this, and songwriting and musicianship too."
No Depression (p.100) - "'Ootischenia', is the quintessential Tanyas song here, an effortless groove accented by Klein's banjo; Ford sings with growing urgency, her bandmates swelling and gelling in harmony behind her."
