Pitchfork Media 7.3/10[3]

Pitchfork Media rated the album 7.3 out of 10, with reviewer Brad Haywood calling it "a solid debut, long on talent but maybe a bit short on melody or lacking in appropriate production".[3] Allmusic awarded it four stars, with Tom Semioli calling it a "mesmerizing debut outing".[1] Indy Week described it as "a quiet collection of songs that tend to spotlight the lyrics, and in Thomas' case, that's definitely a plus".[4] Geoffrey Himes, writing for the Washington Post, commented on Thomas's "frail, breathy soprano that offers reluctant confessions over minimalist keyboard settings".[5]
