"I once read a review of Aqualung where the reviewer describes Matt Hales as sounding like he was in exquisite pain. That's true, he does, but in a very listenable way. This is not an upbeat album in any way, but the lyrics and the sentiment are very cathartic (sorry for the cliche). It's a quiet, intimate album that you're almost afraid to listen to with any one else around. I would recommend this album over the first Aqualung CD."

"I discovered Aqualung through the WB's show Smallville. They played Strange and Beautiful (I've never been much of a commercial watcher, so I missed it when that happened). I searched, and listened to some of the other songs and I've fallen absolutely in love. A worthwhile investment, all around!Where most Artists release a song, and then the other tracks are increasingly different from the sound you fell in love with, Aqualung is refreshingly (instead of stagnantly) consistent with their mesmerizing sound."

"This album is beautiful and heart felt. Great song writing ability is seen and heard in each song. I was trying to make a mix cd recently and looking to put one of these songs on there and I couldn't decide on one because they are all so great. Please take the time to listen to this album and also check out Strange and Beautiful."
