The second album from Henry's Child is a giant leap from their debut, which was excellent but suffered from too much material and weak production. Clearly Confused is better on both counts; the songs are fewer and tighter, and the production is considerably improved, allowing the strength of the band's music to shine through. As on Mumbles & Screams, there's a mix of hard-edged, aggressive songs (such as "Flicker" and "What a Pity") and slower almost-ballads ("Simple Request" and "Color of Regret") that works well. The only real weakness is that for some reason, the band decided to include snippets from an instructional hypnosis record between the songs. This distracts from the material, instead of enhancing it, and really should have been left out. -- Genevieve Williams
A great album

"I must say, I agree with the editorial review -- the hypnosis recording could have been left out! Other than that, a great CD well worth the money. A good mix of hard and soft and lyrical, its sure to be a favorite.. I've seen these guys in concert as well since they're from my town -- The CD is almost better! I think it is because they just changed singers recently and no one was really used to him yet -- even though he had great stage presence! I hope we'll see these guys in the headlines someday.. they can go far!"
