"This is one of those quiet, simple, very very subtle singer-songwriter records that will creep under your skin if you let it -- and it doesn't matter that he didn't write all the songs because Joel's delivery redefines each one (indeed, fans of the covered artists will love this record, as will worshippers of Elliot Smith and Will Oldham). With acoustic guitar, piano, and occasional understated percussion. Absolutely lovely and highly recommended." - Aquarius Records
"Truly heartbreaking, powerful music.” - Comes With A Smile
