Music critic Joe Viglione wrote in his Allmusic "This artist is subtle in her approach with music that comes up behind you and a voice that breathes through the speakers... The production by Delmhorst and Billy Conway is commendable, and the different instruments by a host of musicians find their place, all the elements part of a fabric. The singer doesn't use her voice to command the album as most artists do, but there are textures here, flashes of lyrical brilliance with lap steel guitars, accordion, xylophone, fiddle, and cello weaving in and out... Captivating and very intriguing."[1]
