"The album encapsulates Starski’s talent as both a songwriter and a singer, beginning with the haunting opener “Ode to Nanny and Cookie” featuring with her lilting vocals over an orchestral, almost spaghetti western soundtrack. From there the album gets into a more rustic, folkier sound with Starski going for a more subtle instrumental approach with lush yet quiet textures that allow her voice to really shine. Mostly quiet yet powerfully striking, the album is an impressive solo debut from an artist with much to offer." Glide Magazine
