AllMusic Review by

Diana Ah Naid might be considered the Australian version of Ani Di Franco. Boasting an acoustic guitar and attitude, she even uses similar phrasing. Some material is a basic acoustic guitar and vocal arrangement, but many of the tracks are enriched with interesting instrumentation like cello, saxophone, bass clarinet, and vibes. Much of the material is also very dynamic and energetic as Ah Naid lashes out strongly and graphically against ex-lovers and other people in her past. She is a spirited firebrand who neither minces words nor forgets the importance of a good riff. This self-titled album is promising and deserving of attention from those that like hyper-individualist/feminist folk-rock with the emphasis on rock. A full-color booklet full of pictures supplies all the lyrics.
