”This is what Patricia Barber has: adventurous piano playing, a low-vibrato alto on perpetual rhythm and timbre alert and smart songs about the way we think and live, not just the way we love... This is the kind of art we need to be on the lookout for everywhere. The 21st century has started. We can’t afford to be left behind.” —New York Times

“The coolest singer/songwriter around.” —Los Angeles Times
