Time Off 'Single of The Week' Nov 2011
"The A-side 'Good Grief' is spectacular - lulling you into a false sense of security with lush vocals and a simple progression. It's not until the third section of the track where all the individual elements that have been building up come together into a mash of weird timings, conflicting scratchy sounds, vocal edits and abrasive organ stabs. Side two is less dense, but showcases the extremes of Franzmann's voice, with her delicate Australian accent creeping in delightfully when she whispers."

Do you hear the wicked voices, they come for me at night.
Hang in the air above my body, holding back the light.
And when you're waking, do you feel you've fought a battle deep.
Cast your sorrow, find your holy peace where you breathe.
Oh my little self, she hovers by the door.
Smiles a pretty smile, it's me that she adores.
And if I kick her she won't faulter, a thread it still remains.
She smacks her lips, jumps on my back.
A firm hold on the reins.
