Rolling Stone (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]teeped in jazz and classic pop; much of it is polite and pretty..."Entertainment Weekly (p.94) - "WORLD is like stumbling into a jazz cafe at closing time, when the performers are lingering on stage, not ready to leave the music." -- Grade: A-Q (p.147) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[H]er take on Joni Mitchell's 'River', featuring harmonies from the like-minded kd lang, is the melancholy highlight.
