St. John says of Second Sight:
 
“With these instruments we wanted to create a type of world music but not in a folk music sense. It was more about painting imaginary scenarios, a picture postcard kind of travel seen through the lens of imagination as in “Notti Senza Amore,” an homage to Nino Rota where I had a vision of a sleepy Sicilian village.”
 
“The true qualities of Kate's character shine through the beautiful music she makes.” - Nick Laird-Clowes (The Dream Academy), 2018
 
"[Kate St. John] shares [Francoise] Hardy's gift for melody, crafting songs that use a traditional pop structure but convey a much wider range of emotions than the average three-minute wonder." - Salon
 
"This is a very singular record indeed, one that seems to exist in its own, enclosed world." - MOJO
