Comments:

Love, love, love this album. It's light and bright, and I love the interplay of Sam's and Jesca's voices. It's more folk/Americana than the quirkiness I usually associate with Jesca Hoop (though "Chalk It Up to Chi" sounds like it could have been on Silver Screen Demos or Kismet), but it's absolutely wonderful. (JoAnn Whetsell)
