    Just diving into this one--

    Worth it for Indiscretions alone.

    Solid stuff, always can count on WR

      I slept on this one for years and finally gave it a listen in 2023. Incredible stuff on this one. Now one of my favorite WR records.

        "Confians" is an extremely fantastic acoustic track. Very rich sounding guitars and excellent vocal performance by Mino Cinelu. Definitely the most stand-out track on this record for me.
