Consumer Guide Reviews:

Without You I'm Nothing [Virgin, 1998] Neither

Black Market Music [Virgin, 2000]
With encouragement from, of all people, Pavement, an angstmonger's voice gets political, a little ("Taste in Men," "Slave to the Wage") [unknown]

Meds [Astralwerks, 2006]
See: Lost in the Lonely Crowd.

Battle for the Sun [Vagrant, 2009]
Articulating anxieties not necessarily their own since 1996 ("Bright Lights," "The Never-Ending Why"). *
