"Just when i start to lose faith and bands i like go stale or disappear (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Breeders, Superchunk, Cranes, Pavement, i'm talking to you) something comes along that restores my hope. Helium's Dirt of Luck is that kind of album.From start to finish, Dirt of Luck is no less than perfect. When i put it on, i dont think of listening to a certain song, i want the whole album. Listening to Helium's previous recordings, i always felt something missing. Somehow, it was like they didnt click to full potential. Good, but not great. All that potential, dark, melancholy, blistering, and blissfull is on Dirt of Luck. This is an album of a band playing at its highest level. If they can make an album better than this, i figure my head will explode, because, in my opinion, this is flawless.i commend Mary Timony for every insturment she touches, her lyrics, her wonderful voice, and hope she doesnt slip in the shower anytime soon, becuase i want her to continue making such beautiful music. i remember reading an article about her when Helium first came to be, and she seemed so unsure of herself in the songwriting/music scheme. Well, all i can say, is, Mary, keep on going. You have the stuff. You have the voice. In my book, you are a fortunate one."

"Saw these guys on the 2nd stage at Lollapalooza in 1995. I was taking a break from watching the hip-hop bands they had thrown into the mix, and was mesmerized by these guys. It's pretty rare I see a band live that I've never heard of -- to hear that band and be blown away, I couldn't believe it. I bought the CD immediately, and didn't stop playing it for 2 years.It has great lyrics, great music, great mood, great atmosphere, and just rocks. Mary Timony has such a unique sound, I still think mesmerizing is the best word for it."
