23rd Street Lullaby is the second full-length album by singer-songwriter Patti Scialfa. Released in 2004, a full 11 years after her debut, Rumble Doll, it finds her writing all the songs by herself, as well as co-producing the disc with Steve Jordan.

Reviews[edit]

Allmusic's Thom Jurek gave the disc four stars of five, saying that it is "a wise, grown-up record, yet it is guided by an untamed, wily heart." He praised the "deceptively simple and immediately accessible" melodies & lyrics, yet says that "they open into swirling wells of emotion carried in the cradle of reminiscence and the heart of desire."
