  • KT Tunstall (from Paste Magazine October 22, 2007): "A take on one of my favorite Bob Marley songs called 'Judge Not' - before you point your finger, remember that someone else is already judging you."
  • This topped the Adult Album Alternative (Triple A) airplay charts for 10 weeks, making Tunstall one of only 2 female solo artists to stay at the summit for as long a time: Sarah McLachlan first set the record in 1997 with "Building a Mystery."
