Ghosts of Princes in Towers

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Woodstra
The single "Ghosts of Princes in Towers" was simply brilliant; unfortunately, the album that bore the same name failed to live up to the promise of the single, in most cases trading punky power-pop in favor of more dirge-like hard rock -- muddy sound doesn't help matters either.
