Consumer Guide Reviews:

Hot Rail [Quarterstick, 2000] Neither

Feast of Wire [Quarterstick, 2003]
Latin Playboys as conceived by an Anglo--too artistic, genuinely literary, lyrical enough to haunt you some ("Sunken Waltz," "Black Heart") *

Convict Pool [Quarterstick, 2004]
Songs by Love and the Minutemen, atmospheres by the band ("Corona," "Alone Again Or") **

Garden Ruin [Quarterstick, 2006] Dud
