    I was definitely expecting something below par. And now I know I was definitely wrong.

    Not as good as the Maximo, but I like Suzee. It cheers me up. I'll give the album a few more spins.

    Is he singing as well on this album? I'm not too impressed with his voice if so. The album is just so-so in my opinion. I prefer Duncan's work in MP!
