“The way Talan and Steven Tannen harmonize makes me feel totally comforted and warm, and frequently, for some reason, on the verge of tears… There’s no pretension here, no artifice, no beats by Fisher Price, and absolutely nothing hip. They won’t make you look cool to your extended MySpace network, but there’s absolutely nothing guilty in the pleasure of listening to them.” — PopMatters
