Comments:

This album is a compilation of two eps, but it sounds like a cohesive whole. Kloses's warm vocals are instantly appealing, and the songs are complex enough to warrant attention.
     "Beautiful dream" has some Jeff Buckley-esque vocals, but otherwise the song sounds nothing like his work. Klose is a more conventional singer, more akin to Duncan Sheik.
     "Doing time" is a delicately wrought beautiful song. Kloses's vocals are as great as ever.
     "All these rivers" is a lovely song that recalls the seventies singer-songwriter era in a modern sort of a way. This is a fine record. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
