Part of a larger autobiographical multimedia project, singer-writer Perry's astoundingly insightful song cycle takes on subjects ranging from growing up with an artistic but irresponsible father (the title track and several others) to the emotional impact of California's landscape (Yosemite). This is confessional folk-rock at its best: wise, specific, sometimes harrowing, funny in places, smart about personal mistakes and truly grateful to those who made her the fine artist that she is (whether they consciously helped her along or not). Each cut has a distinctive, pleasing arrangement, and Perry's voice, though dominantly sweet and wearily dry, is a marvelous instrument of many supple colors. -- Los Angeles Daily News
