Fabulous, filled with energy and power. One of my favorite albums. Unique modern sound combinations with beautiful melodies and great vocals, excellent bridges. 'Ghost beside my bed' is deathly & ethereal, 'Reunion' is completely sensual in all dimensions, 'One Small Boat', 'Surrender Now' and 'Until the Music Ends' are all filled with a driving musical force. I don't know why this isn't more popular.

Yeah, I have to agree with the previous reviews. When this CD came out and I bought it, it instantly became my number one with a bullet. It is totally unique and exteremely creative. It also doesnt hurt that it is, still to this day the best looking CD I own. I also would like to know what became of these guys. If anybody knows, please put it a review so we all can know. Since Amazon has this CD for sale at 1 cent, I would suggest any and all to pick up a copy.

I too, had this one on cassette. I first heard this band on a late night radio show which played what WAS alternative music. The DJ introduced "Ghost Beside My Bed" as a song, which kind of reminded him of Pink Floyd. So you can see, this caught my attention. And even after the first listen I went out and bought the cassette and was hooked.

Almost every song on this release is brilliant. Warner Bros. must have thought they had a winner......the music and production on this release has the feel of a more established band. The only drawback, is the opening cut.....does not fit in with the rest of the record. Maybe an attempt at Top 40, I don't know. But saying this, I still think the song is listenable and it only gets better from there. "Ghost Beside.." is the obvious best song on here...all others have a special sound to it, which makes this release classified as a "Lost Classic" by a band who which apparently was given up on. Would be interesting to find out what happened to this band......maybe someone can enlighten me, one day.

Take the chance and give this one a listen to.....you won't be disappoited.

When Ghost Beside my Bed first came out, I went on a quest to get my hands on that CD - and played it repeatedly. It was just the most amazing song I'd heard - and the entire CD became one that I enjoyed immensely.

I don't know what it is about the Ghost Beside my Bed song. It has droney, soothing music, but the angst is just so powerfully drawn out. You never really know why the guy is dreaming / envisioning someone beside him. Did his girlfriend die tragically in a crash? Did she run away, never to be seen again? You get the sense of Heathcliff / Wuthering Heights, that lovers were torn apart.

It goes into "Heal Me" which has the same soaring, soothing harmonies and lyrics. In this case, the partner is there with him, making things all better again.

I really love each song on the CD. Reunion. One Small Boat. Do What you Want. This CD is really a must-have for me, and considering how rare it is to find in modern days, I'll take extra good care of it!!

BTW the listing here at Amazon seems to have the wrong track names.

Ok I've got to say that this group should be one of history's great supergroups! One Small Boat just grabbed me and didn't let go! Step Into My Groove & Surrender Now are simply awesome tracks, Ghost Beside My Bed is the track that's gotten the most attention but One Small Boat is so obviously the overlooked child in the family! Not only is this CD mind numbingly amazing but Dos follows up in regal fashion and feeds the soul as completely as Altered State does. The best thing that anyone can do for themselves is to not only get this CD, but to also invest in DOS. This band is such a treat to the listener, they should be honored as national treasures!
