Comments:

A nice collection of songs and Blake Hazard sings with an assurance that gives her indiepop sound authority and maturity. She doesn't have a strong voice, but it matches her overall sound. There are some electronic touches here, but they don't dominate the stripped-down sound. The songs here have pop yearning, energy, and charm. Fans of indiepop will like this a lot.
