While the new line-up changes the style of the band, the music is classic Veruca Salt. The vocals aren't as rich and layered without Nina Gordon, but this doesn't really affect it.

There are so many great songs on here that I find it hard to choose the best ones, every single track is a winner. There is something so refreshing about this cd and Louise Post's and Nina Gordon's vocals are the perfect accompaniment to the… Read more
