"I came across this cd in an odd way. I was in a cd store and heard a very mazzy star like song playing so i asked who it was, and found out this was the band, it was a used cd, and it was the only copy the store had. I really liked the song a lot since I was on a big mazzy star kick at the time so I asked to buy it, and fell in love with it shortly thereafter. The environment the cd creates is very relaxed, dark, and somehow very very comfortable and comforting at the same time. If you like mazzy star or cowboy junkies you'll dig this quite a bit, lots of nice long drawn out acoustic guitar bits, haunting female vocals thrown around here and there, minimalistic production work, etc. The standout of the cd is by far lullabye. It's a 10 minute long slow building song that at 5 minutes in just breaks out into a continually climbing acoustic guitar solo that is to acoustic guitar driven music what epic trance is to trance music. It swells and builds and then breaks down only to come back with more oomph than before and envelops you in sound. A very nice choice if you do pick up the cd...."

"This record, Low's first, if from a time (1993-1994) before Low perfected their trademark formless and totally entrancing narcotic rock. The product: a perfect hybrid of intense emotion, quite beauty, and "pop" song structure. The result: a whole lot of songs that will whisper in your ear until they are encoded on your DNA. Their rock is at times simply beautiful and emotionally terrifying, and always addictive. Check out: "words", "the sea", "lazy", and the classic "(you are my) sunshine". Truly, one of the new classics!"
This Album WILL Save Your Soul!!!

"If you like Joy Division, early New Order or The Cure, you will appreciate Low. Calm, minimal and honest arrangements support this threesome in creating an album emotionally complex and intense. Low is a band that some would say 'live up to the name' but you will find that although somewhat 'moody' or 'dark', many hours of listening to this album helps achieve a salvation emphasizing it's title. You haven't heard the song "you are my sunshine" until you have heard it performed by Low! -- Glen C."
