Album Review

The novelty-act quality of the Swirling Eddies (the alter-ego incarnation of Daniel Amos) becomes blurred on this release. This is a serious album with an artfully crafted sound and provocative lyrics.

Provided the album stays in print long enough, this will be a recording that stays ahead of its time for a long time. ~ Mark W. B. Allender, Rovi
