Album Review

For just the second time in their career, Tuck & Patti offer an album that contains only original material. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that Chocolate Moment is the first release on their own label. Equally likely is that, as with many other artists, their creativity was stirred to an unusual turbulence by the World Trade Center tragedy of the previous year. Its traces can be discerned most clearly in the lyrics to "Comfort Me," a plea for help after "all my illusions have...crumbled down in smoke and glass," and in a festive call, set to a township beat, to get past "the season of crying" in "Rejoice."
