So Smart. So Good.

I'm a late-comer to Throwing Muses, but theirs is the type of music that will last a long, long time.

University is the best of their catalog, combining Hersh's intellect with some amazing melodies and beats.

The funny thing is that when I first listened to this cd, I was rather unimpressed. It wasn't until I took another listen a couple of months later that I realized that while I had been passively acknowledging their musical skill, I had also been ignoring the power of Hersh's words.
