    I love the John Mitchell version, both albums 4.5 stars out of five. However, Once Around the World is the quintessential album from this band. Kiss Like Judas is one of my three favorite songs, including Three of a Perfect Pair and Help Me.

    no Kino in similar artists? "Picture" is the perfect companion album for "Tall Ships"
