Throwing Muses latest release after ten long years away from us. This band has always been the real deal in an industry with many many pretenders. Whether working on individual projects or back amongst us as a collective they never disappoint. This release has all the quality you would expect with the extensive track listings giving us even more pleasure. The truly unique singer/songwriting talents of Kristin Hersh always brighten up the day, even if the tone sometimes isn’t the happiest. This band has always been too good to be pigeon holed into categories. Listen & Enjoy – Some exceptional - All good. No detectable FCC’s
