Alternative rock wanders along some folky backroads for this L.A. band. At times their raging guitars suggest a summit meeting between John Zorn and Sonic Youth, but Anna Waronker's paper-thin vocals and Petra Haden's violin retain a human dimension. Most tracks zip by in under 2:30, and that brevity and focus pays off on tracks like "Ms. Wrong," "He's Kissing Christian," and "She Doesn't Know How." --Jeff Bateman

"this disc strikes an excellent balance between garage punk, art school concepts and ultra suede harmonies. anna waronker and the haden sisters elevate high-school-crush-diary-confessions into the realm of the metaphysical with plenty of sugar left over to help all the pretensions go down as smooth as peppermint schnapps. a brilliantly conceived piece of work."
This band is incredible!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This album shows the growth and maturity achieved by the band's members since their first(self-titled)album. Touring really paid off for the girls(and guy). Their rhythmic and writing skills have obviously been honed, as has their tonal and emotional vocabulary. The engineering on this album is much cleaner than their previous effort(a miracle, when recording at the same studio twice). Pay close attention to the harmonies by the Haden sisters, as well as the incredible bass playing skills of Rachel Haden. One might like to also give credit to multi-instrumentalist Tony Maxwell, whose drumming takes the listener through a journey into odd-feels and tight rhythmic bliss. As always, the terriffic songwriting skills of Anna Waronker display the hooks that the listener desires, as well as her own personal quirks. An excellent listen, well worth your time and money..."
