Professional Reviews
Spin (6/88, p.78) - "...a listener's delight...few other acts make such surprisingly timeless, sophisticated, and genuinely emotional pop music these days..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.117) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Wearing its transatlantic influences on its sleeve, the album also packs classy white soul workout 'When Will You', and the tale of slowly melting love, 'Chocolate Girl', this beautifully ornamented by BJ Cole's pedal steel."
