Comments:

Songs about devils and cannibals and "Bloodshed in the Woodshed," oh my. It's an amazingly fun and catchy album. The vocals and harmonies are gorgeous, the instrumentation is clever and lively, and the songwriting just delightful. The CD includes the dark and artful video for "Devil of Mine", a song which will glue itself into your head. You owe it to yourself to go and check out the samples at least. (Neile)
