 "From the beautiful recasting of James Taylor's ‘Secret O’ Life’ to the stripped back piano-vocal arrangement of Randy Newman's ‘I Think It's Gonna Rain Today’ – the brilliance and subtlety of the arrangements, together with Tucker's remarkable storytelling gift, combine to make each one sound bracingly fresh."

"Asking these difficult questions, “Do We Sleep?” is a profound number that speaks to a wider sense of the American spirit. Pairing Tucker’s phenomenally smooth and precise vocal performance with a loose, piano-led jazz trio arrangement, there are generations of American art at play throughout the song, almost akin to the way Spike Lee used Americana imagery to illustrate the continued suffering of marginalized communities in America."
