Reviewed by Liz Liew

It seems that each Throes recording marks a change in their band line up. This, however, does not appear to have affected their musical development as a band. Whereas their 1990 debut album 'All The Flowers Growing In Your Mother's Eyes' was, at the time, described as fresh and innovative in the Christian alternative rock scene, five years later this same style has, sadly, reached its expiry date. On the whole this release is musically unadventurous, with similar chord progressions throughout. Also the exceedingly thin vocals are often drowned by too much guitar overdrive. The overall sound of the disc clearly emulates that of REM and the Choir. Nevertheless, a few tracks deserve some credit, namely "Circle Of Wheel", "We'll Breathe" and the ironically hidden cover song "C Is For Cookie". Guest Steve Hindalong lends his talents on backing vocals, pots, pans, shakers (and anything he could find!). Who knows, I might grow to like this one. .
