    Inside The Ships is one of their most entertaining yet confounding albums. [Oct 2011, p.101]

    The results are--as ever--compellingly inventive and seductively imagistic. [Oct 2011, p.100]

    This time around, tuba, chanter, cymbalom and (apparently) paprika add to the nuance by which, at their best, Tarwater seem to stretch sound and time.
