"Simpatico!" CD (Sub Pop)
VG's first album is titled "Copacetic." The second is titled "Simpatico!." Is there a trend developing here? Who cares? The second album from this quintet is arguably better than the first. Sarah's vocals are much clearer and more intelligible and Archie sings on some tracks. Even the production is improved, sounding much cleaner and far more crisp. That sounds like someone praising the steamed vegetables at a particularly sanitary vegetarian café, but it's true. No sophomore jinx here.
