    Alas, they undermine themselves with a weedy production which too often gives proceedings a demo-ish air. [Mar 2005, p.99]

    There are a few weak links... but there's a melodic buoyancy here. [Mar 2005, p.106]

    Good. Definitely good, but not great. "Kit Carter" is amazing as is "Gotta Be That Way".
