Consumer Guide Reviews:

Trailer Park [Heavenly, 1997]
sincere SWF, enjoys tunes on acoustic guitar, likes technology and musos with glasses ("She Cries Your Name," "How Far") *

Central Reservation [Arista, 1999]
So she wasn't techno after all--glad we got that straight ("Stolen Car," "Central Reservation [Original Version]"). *

Daybreaker [Astralwerks, 2002] Dud
