  • I love every song on this album. I've worn out numerous cassettes and CDs of it over the years. I was very sad they stopped at one.
  • nice one.
  • Strong from start to finish. I have always wondered why they didn't continue past their debut gem!
  • absolute fantastic album!
  • I always remember this as one of my favorite albums. I hadn't even listened to it since I haven't had a tape deck and my tapes all wore out...finally embracing the digital age picked it up on MP3, and man, my memory is totally correct. It is a total shame it is all but forgotten now...and a shame they never followed it up. Perhaps that's of what makes it so good. "15 long years on a losing streak..."
  • i always come back to this album
  • When this disc first came out, I bought it, started spinning it and haven't stopped since.
  • I found this album years ago in a store clearance -- it's a neglected gem. Pity it seems to be their sole release.
  • Never heard of this duo before.Like their sound.Pity they split.
