AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Recorded between August 2003 and April 2004, Heart Like a River is Ida's first record in four years and released on their new home, Polyvinyl Records. Ida present everything we love to hear from the band -- amazing harmonies that never get old against lush arrangements that leave you aching in the best possible way. Ida slowly unfold Heart Like a River, enveloping you with an intimate melancholy that directs you to roll along with tracks like the sensitive, vocal brass sound of "Mine," the lightly syncopated, "Written on My Face," and the hypnotic "The Morning." "599" is one track on Heart Like a River that stands out as the highlight, pointing us to an area that Ida should explore in the future.
