Critical reception[edit]

Thom Jurek at AllMusic praises "her literate American gothic songs about wasted lives, desolate characters who roam the highways like ghosts, shattered dreams, and frustrated expectations." [1]

Jon Lusk's BBC review liked " her searing honesty, gift for gritty stories and willingness to acknowledge the darker side of life, without fear." [2]
