Comments:

A lovely album. The four vocal tracks, which are evenly spaced throughout the album, are highly reminiscent of The Innocence Mission. The six instrumental tracks are as well, but less so. It's all over in less than 21 minutes, like a captivating encounter with something brief but memorable—a falling leaf or a wave. I suppose some will find it too sweet or too precious, but I adore it. (JoAnn Whetsell)
