this one won't get enough respect, but isn't that the whole story of Kristin Hersh? the songs are expertly crafted, with her trademark twisted lyrics and unique vocal style. she's a rocker, so this sounds more alt-rock than the current indie preference for an alt-folk sound. there will never be another one like her, and I am still in love. always will be.

the scratch has become a caress, the old verve has collapsed into a handful of harmless and inoffensive songs, some appreciable angularity here and there but it's not enough to save an overall weak album.
