Comments:

The songwriting here is way above pop/rock average. The songs are mostly on the shimmery rock side, though the verse of "Let It Out" is softer and crazy haunting—it has stuck in my head for years. It's too bad this band didn't continue down this path a while to see what happened. This has a ton of promise. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
