Aarik Danielsen of the Columbia Daily Tribune,

has this to say about "Flowers On Mars"...

 

“Flowers on Mars” not only displays the creative exchange between Scott and Gennaro but presents a narrative on love and loss and loving again. Rather than hold the songs back for a later LP, Scott sensed the tracks belonged together and were “screaming to be recorded,” she said. In just four moves, she takes the listener on a journey “from rejection of love, to a cry for understanding and a desire to be forgiven, to confidently pursuing love, to accepting the beauty and complication that is a relationship,” she said.

 

Similarly, the record allows for big, buoyant moments, as well as intricate, intense sounds. “Get Your Love” features a full-size sound Scott is clearly proud of; the cut weds a twinkling, tinkling toy piano melody to a propulsive drumbeat that leads the song to drink from soulful streams. With its mandolin countermelodies and churning rhythms, “Help” leans to the folk side of pop. The title cut grows from a lovely, lilting intro, boasting a rich hook, which Scott lays over a piano-driven promenade. “Sacrifice” captures an unfettered sound, with Scott moving around syllables with grace and ease, even yodeling, all while the soundtrack swells and culminates in spry, driving rhythms.

 

All the material is unified by Scott’s vocals, which grow richer and lovelier as time passes. She said she continues “to discover” and “extend” her lower range, a discovery displayed to great effect and delight here. She tamps more soul and character into a single note or run than most, and “Flowers on Mars” is yet another declaration of her ability."
