Nothing short of amazing transformations towards the ineluctable. You will wonder where this music has been all your life. Leaves floating upward, swirling weightless, it is the sensation of sunshine seeking to breathe in the flabbergasting experience that is life itself. This is so beautiful that the baffling edge between tears and clear-eyed pondering flits upon the window of fate. Epitome crook castling of evermore acid-folk tributaries, parallel the equal to, if not better than, many previous pinnacles. Full faith resides in knowing that no one could resist these charms. Magical spell and witchwood actuary where pulchritude remains unstained and in full vigor. Mark my words, a decade hence, this will be hailed as an undisputed classic of its time, as well as all that have come bearing troubadour wizardry before and after. Compares favorably to Mellow Candle and is as enduringly majestic. Becoming a genteel truncheon, blighting any and all thoughts of life as folly, it is worth living and to be alive, if only to hear this quenching. Margie's voice is a delicate sifting of flowers, melodiously wending in whooshes ruffling the many folds of your multicolored soul. Harp and accordion are aloft. Perfect acid-guitar unearths an encampment. Stems of wisteria blossom into total bloom as the moon doth shine to enliven darkness night. Chords of divine truth, as wisdom, emanate presciently, long after the moment is gone – a daedal dawk aural decoupage under aegis of susurrus spectacle in toto. Prepare to be mesmerized by evanescent sonic ambrosia.
