Comments:

i heard the single, bought the record, loved it, although it's not my usual cuppa. 'Excuse Me' is one of the tamest songs, believe it or not, and i thought the record as a whole was quite consistent. (dmw@mwmw.com)

I agree with Doug—while this isn't something I'd usually be interested in, I found this tough and funny. Amy Arena is an interesting performer and she packs a mean punch. Maybe not something I need to listen to too often—I imagine it could get grating after a while—but worth listening to for all that. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
