AllMusic Review by

Blending melodic pop and gentle folk, Neil Cavanagh walks the path of many other sharp, sensitive troubadours before him (Elliott Smith, Jeff Buckley). Like Smith, he favors his upper register and applies dense vocal harmonies to it, chooses complicated guitar picking patterns, and plays all the instruments himself, creating his own warm, dense universe. He also has the good taste to cover Judee Sill.
