The songs are full of interesting combinations of words and rhythm, but Mike and Peggy often seem to miss the subtle brilliance of the off-beat energy of half of the songs. Read morePublished on April 9, 2008 by cup o tea
Didn't I listen to the sample tracks?
The singer might be to your taste, but not mine. Do yourself a favor and listen before you buy.
