Bells that go Carroll

"At some point during "It Goes" I felt shaken from my heart to my toes. By the end of "My Ruins" I was in tears. Carroll is an awesome conduit of the Bard. Rimbaud lives! There are songs and spoken word on this disc. Be warned faint of heat. This will be your most precious of pains. By this CD>"
A Very Deep "Pools of Mercury" = }

"He's taken his time, and now Jim Carroll's back with smthg new, fresh, and unbelievably powerful. Still love "People Who Died"? Well, this records adds depth and understanding to his past, while maintaining his truth that has kept many of his fans so hooked. The poems are from Void of Course or Fear of Dreaming, and against the intricate background music, they are defined and carefully thought over. There's five rock numbers, and each one is a highlight. Especially check out Falling Down Laughing (#2) and The Beast Within (#14). Jim Carroll personally recommended that i get this cd, and now i'm passing the recommendation to you- "you know, you should get the new cd, i mean, it's got songs on it, not just spoken-word..." [quote Jim Carroll] Get this cd, and get ready to be shocked out of your world! a day's not a day if i don't hear smthg from Pools of Mercury! A definite masterpiece!"
Waivers in the clouds of greatness!

"As a 17 year old I wore the ink off my "Catholic Boy" cassette and found "The Basketball Diaries" hypnotic. I forgot about Jim until I stumbled into "Pools of Mercury". He is a breathing Rimbaud, blessed with musical talent. Buy this CD!"
