Review by Steve Alspach
Thank God for perseverance. Without it, Edison would have said "The hell with it, candlelight's not so bad," the book of Exodus would have been a lot shorter, and Salem Hill wouldn't have given us this crafty little gem. Longtime band members Carl Groves, Pat Henry, Kevin Thomas, and Michael Dearing have stuck it out over the years, and this album (voted as the album of the year by National Review Online - think it will show up in William Buckley's CD collection?) shows a band at top musical and songwriting form.
