"Very original. Very awesome. I had the very good fortune to grow up on the music of the Urban Verbs. It is a sound that I never tire of. I can go back to this album (and their first one as well) again and again and again. The music is awesome. The sound they created is so awesome. Robert Goldstein's music, Roddy Frantz's vocals, Robin Rose's analog synth and Danny Frankel's drumming all come together for an incredible melange of sound that I only wish there was more of. The thing about this album that one gets used to upon repeated listening is that for the most part the music is over the lyrics instead of vice versa. It is so rich and so awesome. My favorite tracks (among a favorite album) are In the Heat and Terminal Bar (a favorite among favorites). If you don't know this music and are the least bit interested I highly recommend it. You will not be sorry."
