Easily One of the '90's Most Exceptional Efforts
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Pop-rock with solid, otherworldly atmosphere. "Ray Ray Rain" is as good a song as we got from a rock band over the course of the last decade, and "Crutches" is even better. 2000 is a good year to take stock, go back and listen to good music you might have missed. If you start here, you'll be very pleased you did. A resourceful, original work by an important band that keeps on pushing."
Dissappointing Second Album

"Following up one of the best albums in Dutch history is always hard. 'Palomine' in my view was the best Dutch album in the 1990's and hopes were high for Lamprey. A little too high, because Lamprey does not totally live up to their name. It is the best sounding Bettie album however and probably the best produced, unfortunately the quality of the songs is sometimes lacking.
Only Keepsake, Tell me Sad and Something So Wild can be added to the great Bettie Serveert songbook worth keeping. Still a good buy though, some people think this is the best Bettie album"
