It simultaneously recalls Tori Amos and Captain Beefheart."Uncut (p.65) - "[A] solo debut that swerves from sweet-as-molasses love songs -- laced with lethal humor -- to industrial tracks reminiscent of a less squawky Bjork."Uncut (p.125) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] showcases a vivid and fully formed talent clearly versed in quirky, often humorous songcraft."CMJ (p.43) - "[With] clever instrumentation....She's made a great album."0.4206261
