Critical reception

Joe Heim of Salon gave the album a very favorable review, praising its melancholy themes.[4] The Times Colonist called the album "utterly sublime," writing that Jurado "doesn't sing as much as he emotes, but when this young talent spins his altruistic tales of unrequited love lost and found, depression doesn't sound any sweeter than this."[5] The Guardian thought that "there are uncanny reminders of the late Nick Drake in some of his songs."[6]
