East of the Sun, West of the Moon
A small surprise, too quickly destined for the cut-out bins considering the way their career finally went after Hunting High and Low. This is a nicely crafted collection of songs, performed and sung beautifully, with lots of echoes and suggestions tucked into the music. While not an album one can discuss at length, its an album that's a pleasure to listen to and one that deserves a better reception than the one, unfortunately, that it seems to have gotten (McDonald).
