saw them play live last year, and unfortunately bought the cd at the show, before they played. dana colley and billy conway are still great. the band has tight drumming, chewy bass lines, and mind-blowing sax (and harmonica!) work, but the vocals and songwriting just aren't there. laurie sargent's voice and lyrics sound just like every other singer you hear on the not-very-good "contemporary adult" npr station. the only listenable songs in the set were morphine tunes, and even they were disappointing. it's a shame - if dana and billy had just looked a little harder for a new front (wo)man, this would probably be a great band. oh well. pick up a morphine disc instead, or the mark sandman box set.
