"Her voice is exquisite, and her writing remains as surprising as it is masterful. Blessed with a crystalline voice, the ability to find shadows and nuance in her lyrics and a spark that can ignite songs into brushfires of truth, Griffin stands as one of America’s foremost voices of the human condition."
Rolling Stone

"Every Patty Griffin song arrives fully and perfectly formed, which is perhaps her greatest gift. Her song writing is honest and compassionate no matter the subject. Her voice is uniquely compelling, and her guitar work unfailingly evocative. She's a songwriter at the top of her already formidable game."
