THE GAZETTE / BLACKPOOL, UK / FEBRUARY 26, 2005

It's always wise to expect the unexpected-so having got over the pleasant opening track, Dream of a Black Horse, inspired by an ancient Vietnamese tune but infused with some hefty guitar and haunting vocals, you can put money on the shock element of a slowed-to-a-near-halt version of Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze. And when that's sunk in, try the country standard Stand by Your Man served up as a monologue. From classic rock to classical music, it's a decidedly different, quite intriguing collection.
