A hidden gem
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It's a bit of a shame that this band hasn't reached the same extent of popularity as Oasis and Blur. Pastoral, almost neo-psychedelic arrangements dominates this set. "Your Smile", "Adrenalina", "Night Song" are exercises in meticulously crafted pop. On the other hand, "Magazine" is hyperactive, jagging new wave, recalling the nascent XTC. All in all, XTC seems to have been an important inspiration for these lads, and when the result tastes like this, then I'm happy..."
Do Bother!

"This album is packed with witty and quirky tasteful guitar pop that is very catchy. Strands of psychedelic backwards guitar weave in and out of some tracks. The production is flawless and the arrangements couldn't get any better. It's too bad this band faded into obscurity. A must for anyone who likes guitar pop mixed with psychedelia."
A bit of a lovely piece of work.

"It's great this is. I'm surprised that I can't find hardly anything about them at all on the net. Their music is fine, and Shearer's voice is wonderful. Adrenalina was the first song I heard. It's brilliant. And then there's Night Song, Saved, Jealousy, Wait and See. All nice things."
