First I'd just like to say 'thank you' to everyone who has reviewed albums here on PA and led me to discover great music! As a matter of fact, I swear by the PA reviews, especially when I discover another cd that I have to have! Damn y'all! Please pardon my French! And to you French, please pardon my English!

In regards to this recording, I enjoy it immensely! I didn't 'get' it on the 1st spin, but after a couple I did 'get' it! Right now it holds the coveted, 'I can't take it out of my van's cd player' award! The word that I feel describes this album most appropriately is intricate. (and whether you might have noticed or not, that sentence did not end in an exclamation point!) (sorry). Even on the more aggressive moments of this album, intricacy is still whispered to me. Although aggressiveness is in the minority here-it's a more finessed, middle-of-the-road type of recorded music, if you will. In it's own way, it's very beautiful to me without being overtly mellow. Although I do like many a mellow cd which I discovered on PA also. Bastards. What, do you think I'm made of money or something?!

I am torn between giving this outstanding recording of luscious music 4 or 5 stars. I love it, but I can't quite bump it up to 5 stars. It's at least 4.5 though! So I'll give it a solid, highly recommended 4 stars! Thanks for reading, take care and enjoy Gods gift of music!

PS-Please be assured that my cursing was very much meant to be comical and I do not direct that to anyone at all on PA! (one last exclamation point!)
