Poppy, soulful, longing and safe is what goes through my mind when I switch this album on. In vain, I keep waiting for that hook that will electrify my blood circulation, pumping through my veins and into my heart. Alas, I am left wanting. The exception to this rather dormant state of being comes from the soul-like number, “Love You Like That.” However, it is clear this is not something to dance to. Rather, consider this wine-and-dine music. Break out the cheese and chardonnay—please shock me with something else. –Nick Kuzmack
