Comments:

Lyrics are dark (no surprise). (vickie@enteract.com)

I only listen to this occasionally because country music doesn't appeal to me that much even though I find Exene's rough voice and delivery appealing. (Neile)

I think I like it now more than ever. Of course I love her in everything she touches, from X to her guest spot on the Old '97s track "4 leaf clover." (mlowry@startext.com)
