This was the first hearing of Ariel's music for me, after reading various bits about it. Having listened to this a few times, I can sort of see what the fuss is about, in that the hooks really get into you after a bit. Interesting tunes and words. Maybe I'm too oldskool, but the sound quality on this disc is so bad that it does detract from the enjoyment of the music for me. Yeah, he recorded it on cassette in his room etc, but so did lots of other artists back in the heyday of cassette multitracking, and the best of them sounds way better that Mr Pink's efforts, sonically that is. Not many would match his writing and arranging talents though, and ultimately that is what matters of course!
