    Kaki King went from obscure guitar-slinger to critics' darling during the course of 2007, and raised her profile further with some guest appearances on other people's albums and a number of well-attended shows. This 2008 release capitalizes on her newfound fame, but does nothing to tamper with the melodic and technical acumen that got her there in the first place. This fourth album has a slightly more intimate feel, focusing on intricate finger-picking and honest lyrics that explore the emotionally raw state after a break-up.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.104) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "That astounding guitar mastery is still evident, but DREAMING seems more interested in evoking deeper moods than showing off."
    Entertainment Weekly (p.75) - "DREAMING should draw gearheads with its technical prowess and the rest of us with its quiet loveliness." -- Grade: A-
    Q (Magazine) (p.139) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a finely textured, quietly hypnotic collection showcasing her guitar chops inside mellifluous, complex songs."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Bone Chaos In The Castle' could be Eno's take on jazz-funk, and her Morrissey-style lament on 'Life Being What It Is' sounds all the better for its dreamily placid tones."
    Harp (magazine) (p.102) - "[The album] expands the range of King's artistry further by alternating her intricate, luxuriant instrumental excursions with concisely constructed, incisive pop-rock songs."
