"Early in 1996 one of major TV networks featured an obscure band, Love in Reverse, in a documentary segment on one of its primetime news shows (don't recall which one). I was intrigued by their music as it played in the background and made it my business to seek out their first major label release, the 5 song EP "I Was Dog". I was stunned. This CD proves that more can be made with less as repeated listenings reveal the genius of the textured layers of guitar, bass and drums. Michael Ferentino, Andres Karu and Dave Halpern produced synergistic guitar/bass chord phrasings, augmented them with strong drumming and capped them with clever "angst ridden" lyrics. The opening song, "The Romantic Age", is one of my personal all time favorites...and I'm not sure why. Let's just say that this song will be appreciated by anyone who's suffered through a bitter break up. Unusual, hard-edged alternative rock that got harder with their follow up full length release "I Was Here". These two CD's should be treated as a set (come on, take a flyer on some used copies)as it seems apparent that they were recorded in proximity. After six years these lost gems still find their way into my rotation. This is an under-rated band that I just love (in reverse or not). Will you?"
