"despite some critical acclaim this band is strangely unknown in the usa. strange considering how good they are that is. this compilation is by far their best cd (or album) i've heard. i had a couple of their other albums back in the day but none of them impressed me as much as this one has. i've played it non stop since i got it. basically their music is sophisticated, arty, aussie folk rock with slight punk rock influences. a kind of non aggressive (romantic) guitar rock. many of the songs are catchy. i got my copy used for 8 bucks. it's my best cd buy in ages."
