Answers to Nothing is a pleasant, if not exactly memorable, slice of adult pop

    This is a lost treasure, a truly great album

    This album had several songs that got radio play but the album itself was hard to find for a long while (even at the time of its release). This is an intelligent masterpiece of questioning and longing, a very emotional album for the listener even as Midge presents his songs in a rather straightforward manner. The songs of so powerful in themselves that there is little need for acoustic fireworks. This is one of the few albums I have bought for friends just to make sure they hear it. I am so happy to see this version of the album being made available again.
