"One of the most visceral break-up albums the genre has ever offered up, this debut from the Maine singer-songwriter Aly Spaltro is a work whose honesty, uncompromising ambition and caution-to-the-wind recklessness leave you short of breath. Evincing a deep immersion in the work of Patti Smith, the Breeders, the Smiths, PJ Harvey, Feist and Sharon Van Etten, Ripley Pine is shot through with romantic regret, carnal longing and a bitterness that can never quite vanquish Spaltro’s enduring love for the woman she is writing about. ..."  
- Sunday Times, "album of the week"

"Plenty of albums mine youthful angst; far fewer offer any answers. Spaltro pleads and howls her way to the crux of the matter, finds her own way out, and leaves a poetic map behind for the rest of us."
