Promise Ring at their Best.

I won't question why there's two versions of this album on iTunes, if that's what allows this review to be seen. I have been ardently with TPR for years, and know all their music well. This is undoubtedly Promise Ring at their finest. I don't know all the reasons for their breakup, but slow sales of this album couldn't have helped.

I'd say this album would be great for you if you like the style of Jack Johnson, but wouldn't go quite to the intensity of The Used. Good work, Davy
