    Freakwater are FANTASTIC! Catherine Irwin can write cutting lines like nobody else. The open lines from Gravity off of the same album are brutal:

    I wasn't drinking to forget, I was drinking to remember
    how I once might have looked through the eyes of a stranger
    When all hope should be gone, still a dream somehow lingers
    like the ghost of a snowstorm in frostbitten fingers

    I never got into Freakwater, but I'm a huge fan of Bean's other band-
