There are a few songs on here that I haven't heard yet and can't wait to get to, but I can vouch for this being one of the all time great bands that didn't get the recognition they deserved. It's been twenty years since I used to go see them at the Reseda Country Club, the Roxy and the Whiskey a Go-Go and their music has stayed with me and endured the test of time. Top notch musicianship combined with excellent hooks and lyrics far more thought provoking than the average 80's hard rockers. I will truly always miss this band. This album is a treasure.
