EmmaCSep 14, 2006Smoosh is AMAZING. There are no other words for it. No others.
AdrianoCJun 30, 2006Let me change the sentence from one of the critics above: this is what perfect pop is supposed to sound like. Uncompromised yet beautifully done, with some surprising melancholic moments. One of the best albums of 2006 so far.… Expand
