Don't think, just get it

"This cd, along with their previous "Mo-di", has to be among the most underrated albums ever produced. I was lucky enough to learn of this band when they performed live here back in 95 at the Detroit Art Fair, soon after the release of "Shorelife". I've owned this cd since then, and to this day, it is one of the very few albums I own that I absolutely cherish every single track, and have yet to tire of them. I am baffled as to how this project slipped under the public's radar as they sound extremely radio-friendly. I am certain that if they had made a few videos, it would have boosted their popularity."
A disappointment for some

"Obviously some fans have enjoyed this album, so I'm not trying to say it isn't good-- only that it is EXTREMELY different from Martin Swan's first Mouth Music project, which I found brilliant. In my humble opinion, I think that the vocals really hurt the songs-- they don't capture the spirit as Talitha McKenzie did. Also, with the exception of one or two songs, the music is a bit weak and underdeveloped.

For those who are wanting to check out Mouth Music for the first time, I'd suggest staying away from this album as it isn't a fair representation of Martin Swan's incredible talents. I'd recommend going for the very first album, Mouth Music, or the newest, Seafaring Man (which is very different than the first, but equally brilliant).

Please refrain from saying that my review is unhelpful if you merely disagree with me. Cheers."
