I gather that most fans of this album purchased it when it came out. I've only just now discovered it, unfortunately. It's like somebody set out to deliberately make a depressing album. I do like the warm atmosphere, but the music slowly plods along with little variation. Every track sounds the same. The instrumentation is sparse, with a preponderance of ride cymbal. Mournful male/female vocals haunt each song until, by the third track, you just can't take it anymore. I could see this being played in a coffee shop back then, but it would have driven away most customers.

Unless you're reliving your depressed glory days of the 1990s (when you really had nothing to be depressed about), avoid this.
