The album starts off with "Fly" that carries similarities to the folk-rock band Bright Eyes as Anne's way with worlds reflects that of Connor Oberst. The country-folk sounds of "September" and "When I See Stars" is where Annie's voice and lyrics shine. Annie goes a little alternative on "Cigarette" but counters that with the gentleness of "With You". The album's title song "Strangers Who Knew Each Other's Names" has some great, thought-provoking lyrics when you think about the subject matter of online dating. Annie mixes up the tempos with the back-porch sounds of "Hardy Boys" and the alternative rock of "Find Me" before closing with the quiet questions of "How Am I Supposed To Be?".
