NME

Rogers’ voice and instrumentation is impressive throughout, but it’s on the production side that she really shines. In an industry where female producers are few and far between, she’s a welcome new talent.

AllMusic

These five songs -- all anchored in atmospheric electronics -- are assured, tightly constructed compositions graced with glassy electronics.

Pitchfork

Rogers is a promising songwriter when unattended—“Alaska” in particular is full of understated heartbreak, sort of like a PG take on Tori Amos—but the poppier tracks here often dissolve into soft-rock nothingness.

A pretty good start. "Alaska," the song most people will come in here knowing, is unsurprisingly the best and most distinctive cut here, but a couple other songs match it in terms of production chops. Some moments are a bit more derivative, suggesting she's still trying on different sounds and seeing what fits best. This is totally fine at this stage, and it's worth keeping an eye on her for her debut proper.
