Comments:

Stuck's music is part jazz and part funk. Chisa's inspired vocalising makes sure it doesn't get too hard to get into. The songs dart between restless energy and poppy hooks in a great way. The cooly understated "I don't Understand" is deeply haunting. "Hypnosis" has one of Chisa's most engaging vocal parts and a great melody. "Her Light (parts I & II)" is mysterious and evocative. It's a good jazz ode to the northern light.
     Stuck are a lively bunch and their record is good fun and very moving at the same time. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
