Nice band. The Crane Wife is their masterwork. But their other albums are worth checking out too.

Absolutely superb band. Each album has a distinct character. In general they are a highly theatrical story-telling band; terrific musicians and wonderful arrangements.

Great live band - one of the few that really engage with their audience, these days - and they are building up a great catalogue of albums. Hazards of Love is awesome, with Picaresque and Crane Wife not far behind.

From Defago
Great music. Musically, these guys know what they're doing, and it shows (The Island's latter half, for example). Interesting lyrics, too.
