Album Notes
From the first pumping chorus of 16 Tons of Love to the wild abandon of The Good Woman..."There's all kind of great sounds to luxuriate in here - a Hendrix inspired riff, a Led Zep influenced groove, smoky vocals that go from blues to soul to disco and all the way back again. The sound is seductive, creative and just downright good. 5/5"- Louder Than War, Jun'13
