Comments:

most wonderful. (woj@smoe.org)

Strange and experimental but full of hooks—that defines almost everything Amy Denio touches, and certainly this disc. With some slightly mellower songs and a little more acoustic-sounding than most of Amy Denio's solo work (though really not very different from her solo work), this is a really lovely collection of songs. Amy Denio's sound (accordion, sax, her vocal techniques) is all over this, though. Highly recommended. (Neile)
