immediately timeless,” - Calgary Herald
“The album is moving and thoughtful at times, in other places fun and retro...Chalk up another winner for Little Miss Higgins.” - Spill Magazine
“It’s the kind of small song you would find in Julie Doiron and Sarah Harmer and the in Carol Shield's writings but as with those ladies Little Miss Higgins takes the smallness and makes it big big and bigger until the love expressed in the work wraps us all.”
