Comments:

"Neurotica" is the first track of theirs that made me really stand up and pay attention to them in the midst of a bunch of mp3 downloads, but all of the songs have hooks and great moments. This is another time when the only music available from a band is a burned CD from mp3. This are 8 strong tracks, though "Cold Comfort" may tend a little more towards plain folk than I usually like, on repeated listens I got quite fond of it. And after many, many listens I still love "Neurotica." (Neile)
