“Mainstream country music – more Nashville than Austin, and not remotely alt. Just immerse yourself in Cook's considerable gifts, here brought into sharp perspective by Jansson's production and the guests who support but never impose themselves.” – Graham Reid ex Billboard (NZ) NZ Herald, Elsewhere
“Cook follows her instincts on this record and they range from Kiwi Country to a kind of 70's Californian pop sound, which she handles with ease on 'Love is full time Job'. She’s made an impressive album of songs that reflect on those miles she’s traveled.” - Nick Bollinger Radio New Zealand
“It is refreshing to see Aly using a variety of styles throughout and this is a pleasant change to some of the unvaried and similar sounds coming from other country related artists. I'll definitely be interested to find out what type of sounds or themes will be on Aly Cook's next release but in the meantime, I will definitely hit the loop button on my player for this one”. - Craig Parry Fatea Magazine UK
