"Lyrically brilliant and musically intense this album has all the elements of a great poetry reading that Jack Kerouac could never have imagined. "Water's Edge" tops the intesity chart for describing the sense of yearning. Other songs touch a full range of human emotions with such aphoristic statements as "A lie is the shortest distance between two faces..." or the poetic image" I am a candle in a vacuum / my face is stone / my lips are frozen." This is a great introduction to the band and incentive to seek out their later recordings. By the way, in reference to an earlier review, "the leader chic" does not have an attitude. Email them via their web site and you will get a friendly response."

"Great scruffy, indie guitar-pop with righteously pealing two-part female harmony and songs that swell with bursts of anthemic melody, sometimes somber, sometimes frisky. Avoid all subsequent releases as they are knotty, overly clever, didactic and lacking in the charm of this record. It's a shame they would turn their back on this sound, as they admittedly did, because the direct melodicism here made for a more affecting record than their later art-brat phase. lead singer chic's got an attitude too"
