Queen Mab

Queen Mab: Close (Spool)
Label: Spool    
Released in: Canada    

"In this release, Queen Mab play with greater abandon, aided and abetted by five distinct personalities who join them on one track each. At once more assertive and vigorous in their own forays, they are now carving out quicksilver designs full of tensile strength. Design as the key to all artistic endeavor? Indeed. But so is instinct, and a guiding light that now shines brightly on their path ahead."-Marc Chenard

"Although Barbie's Other Shoe was convincing, this second offering is better in every conceivable way; impeccable production, energizing, urgent and unbridled playing (without overdoing it - we'll put that on the count of feminine sensibility times two). Oh, and a lush artistic presentation. A winner on all counts, this record is a must!"-Francois Couture, All Music Guide
