AllMusic Review by

Strong singing and songwriting from this trio consisting of vocalists Kelly Thomas and Laurie Lehrer and guitarist/vocalist Scott Miller. Most impressive is how Miller's simple acoustic guitar work fills all the holes in this music, keeping a strong sense of rhythm while dropping in just the right fills in just the right spots. Miller's vocals are also low-keyed and conversational on the delightfully scornful "Fine Line" and "Keep My Faith." Both Thomas and Lehrer bring much to the mix as well, with strong lyrics and a sense of spirit that make the vocals, whether harmonizing or in solo turns, work seamlessly in their message. A homemade record that really hits the spot.
