Tons of personality

"I love this record. It is funny, sexy, poignant, lonely, melodramatic and just simply a perfect representative of its own time. It's filled with great guitar, great amp sounds (despite some verbed-out 1980s production) and touching, intricate, puzzling and --- what's that word everyone uses about Verlaine? oh yeah, cagey, pop songs. It's like a dark new wave blues surf portrait of having spent time on Mars in some heavy, unresolved relationship. One song pays passionate homage to conversation during an unfulfilling reunion in a restaurant, another seems to be about a tragically bleak dream, and otherwise it has much to offer in the way of hilarious sexual innuendo. What more could anyone want?"
ONE OF THE GREAT LOST GUITARISTS. A MUST FOR ANY GIT FAN

"Tom Verlaine was ONCE viewed as the NEXT JIMI HENDRIX, a hard cap to fit. Verlaine is a brilliant guitarist who arose from the NYC Punk scene with his band Television. DREAMTIME was an early '80s LP on Warner Bros. and went nowhere due to no promo support when issued. Sadly, the limited edition CD went nowhere also. He incorporates ex TV bassist Fred Smith on this album and does his homework good. The album is packed with ESSENTIAL TINY JEWELS of his Songwriting-Vocal and Git skills. This release as with other Verlaine albums maybe a bit difficult to define in terms of musical freedom. Only for DIE HARD TV fans or other folks looking for MUSICAL ADVENTURES. This Japan CD is long out of print and a highly sought collector's item."
