"Lida Husik is in an acoustic dimension other women artists can imagine exists, but cannot deliver. Husik's vocals are like ripples in a plush velvet cape, her instumentation evokes an exotic landscape that undulates and crests with the subconscious. Her lyrics will pull your mind forward .Even though you feel motionless, you find yourself on you feet, swaying. Or are you?"
She Lives in a Time of Her Own

"The dream-pop on "Bozo" prefigured the kind of music Beth Orton (post-Chemical Brothers) and Lori Carson (post-Golden Palominos) would be making only a few years later but--unfortunately--to less acclaim. Like those singer/songwriters, Husik wraps her pleasing, dusky voice around off-kilter lyrics, buffeted by hazy guitars, percussive beats, and the occasional organ bleat. On some songs, such as "Hateful Hippy Girls," she appears to have been possessed by the spirit of "Hyaena"-era Siouxsie, singing in a lower register over musical backing that sounds vaguely sinister. The highlight of the set is the trippy "Farmhouse," which samples surly, raspy-voiced bartender Louis "Red" Deutsch of Tube Bar fame ("Who you wanna talk to?! Who you wanna talk to?!"), basis of a long running routine on "The Simpsons." Shimmy Disc founder Kramer (Bongwater) produced the recording with his trademark airy, atmospheric touch."
