Muses return to power trio sound!
on 13 April 2003
Though all Muses and Kristin Hersh fans will buy this anyway, it's definitely worth a listen even if you're new to this iconic band. It's a return to their heavier rockier sound, with powerful, brilliant drumming from David Narcizo and Kristin fabulous on guitar and vocally as magnificent as ever. The sound came off better live, though with repeated listening this album definitely grabs you, especially tracks like Pretty or Not and SolarDip which engage that trademark Muses mid song tempo change so well. Prodigal Muse Tanya Donelly makes a brief return to the band, contributing backing vocals to 5 tracks.
