"Chastity Brown is that rarity, an R&B singer not in thrall to the diva delusion.  Her folk-blues style instead comes from an earthier tradition...languid slide guitar and a ghostly burr of organ underscore "House Been Burnin," while fellowship for the foreclosed and abandoned in "When We Get There" is evoked in Dylanesque harmonica and the way her voice cracks on the highest notes. Songs of return and redemption predominate."  -The Independent
