    REENO
    Great album from Will Anderson & Ray Reid of Crown Heights affair. Between them & Bert Reid (also from CHA), these guys made a string of fantastic records circa 1980-1984.
    This Empress album is a good example of that production/writing prowess, though I feel the lead vocalist cannot match the level of the music in this case.
