Nice to hear them again!

Martha Davis graces our atmosphere once again! What a delight to hear one of the most distinctive (and sexy) voices of rock back again singing intelligent, accessible music as only she can. "Nothing" and "The Day That Won't Go Away" belong on any of their greatest hits albums from now on!! Real musicians evolve and get even better and here is a perfect example of it.


I really never liked or could not stand pop music, and i think the USA is getting sucked into a stupidity vortex but some how i will pop in "Careful" or "all for one" in the cd carousel, and have some songs on the ipod, Well "The day that wont go away" should be on the radio now instead of "kissing girls" or "she's just being smiley virus".... and the "last of the bohemians" sounds like that the track fell off "Careful" any ways this is a must for any Motel fan and music lover. "sleep" is getting better with every time i listen to the song the keyboard player (nick Johns) is very good and keeps the album in check! Congradulations Martha, I am so happy for you and i'll see you in NYC !

Good Job

Nick Johns really makes this album great. He is a true music genious. Buy this album.
