General comments:

While I like the lead singer's voice, the music didn't grab me. I'm trying to think who it's like. Vectored in the Velocity Girl/Eve's Plum area is probably the closest comparison I can manage. (Neile)

I love them myself. Kind of like the The Cardigans with crunch. Nowhere near Velocity Girl or Eve's Plum in my ears. Brenda Khan comes to mind. (lissener@wwa.com)

Comments:

I was hurriedly looking through the used disc bins and came across this self-titled CD. I'd never heard of Clara · Thomas before, but there was a nice photo on the front and the back copy looked promising, so I bought it. Fortunately for me, it's pretty good! (Riphug@aol.com)

I also found this in a bargain bin and picked it up on spec; unfortunately, I didn't found their sound very interesting or distinctive to my ears. Not bad, just not interesting enough to add to our mess of cds. (Neile)
