...a decade later, I still come back to it

"I saw Murray Attaway play at the Backstage in Seattle (well, actually Ballard) in support of this album in 1993. I'd heard of Guadalcanal Diary, but never actually heard their music. After the show I picked up the disc and listened to it fairly obsessively for the next few weeks. Of all the thousands of discs I've picked up in the intervening ten years, none has stayed with me the way "In Thrall" has. Do yourself a favor. Buy this disc. It has everything; melodies, lyrical depth, production. I went on to buy every Guadalcanal Diary disc I could lay my hands on, and it was one of those "...damn, if only I'd known" experiences. I've looked online repeatedly for information about what, if anything, he's done since "In Thrall" only to find the same empty whistling between the trees that greeted this brilliant album.Murray, if you're out there...thank you; we're still listening."
Amazing Piece of Work

"I totally stumbled upon this album about 11 years ago. I was in a music store and the song "Allegory" came over the speakers. I immediately ran over and asked who this was and what a great sound it had. I was a fan after that. I still play this album today all the time and "My Book" is one of the best pieces I have ever heard. August Rain and Even Song are the other standouts on the LP. I had never heard of Murray Attaway or Gualdalcanal Diary before this album but I have to tell you those albums hold up to the test of time as well.
I highly recommend this album and you will be hooked as well. My only complaint is: Murray Attaway when are you going to put out another solo effort?"
