AllMusic Review by

Containe's lovely debut is a spare, shimmering showcase for the ethereal harmonies and poignant songcraft of Fontaine Toups and Connie Lovatt. Although the jangly "Mean Song" kicks up more than its share of dust (courtesy of guest drummer Dave Frank), the remainder of the record is plaintive and nuanced, dominated by haunting vocals and delicate guitars; the best songs -- "Shooting Me Down," "You Don't Owe Me," "Big Blue Car" -- are palpably sad, and genuinely affecting.
