I hesitated to write this, but is Kiss Each Other Clean well, a little too buffed? Held up against the understated but memorable groove and lustre of Shepherd's Dog - 50 albums of all-time; ever; period; no argument, (stop bickering at the back) - this just doesn't cut it for me. That's not to say it's not a grower, or is without memorable hallmark Sam Beard moments, but it 'aint happening for me. Just a bit too saxy.
Surprisingly so too, I must add.
3 stars at most, although with dullards like Lazarus and Fake Name, it's scratching at a 2.
