Consumer Guide Reviews:

Devil's Workshop [SpinArt, 2002]
makes writing short catchy postpunk songs seem so easy--maybe too easy, considering how hard the longer ones come ("Velvety," "Whiskey in Your Shoes") ***

Black Letter Days [SpinArt, 2002]
"The Black Rider," "1826" Choice Cuts

Show Me Your Tears [SpinArt, 2003]
You show me yours and I'll show you mine ("Horrible Day," "Everything Is New"). **
