In a Big Golden Cage Review

by Jason Ankeny

The Penelopes' debut -- recorded as a four-piece -- is a luminous and unassuming gem; the group approaches Western pop with touching reverence, and tracks like "Please Listen to Me" and "Paper Tiger in Me" assimilate the influences of everyone from the Shoes to the Railway Children to result in wonderfully gentle and off-kilter music.
