I *love* E&S&M....as with all MO releases, it's totally different both from its
predecessor and its subsequent release, and offers a variety of flavors.  E&S&M
has a real sensuality coming through that I don't hear quite as much on other
albums (not saying it's ABSENT, just not as obvious).  Judging from the last
"best fave/least fave" survey on here awhile ago, I may be one of the only
people that really adores "Outbreak of Love."  Though it's hard to pick out of
so many awesome tunes, "Now or Never Land" has been my absolute favorite ever
since the Milwaukee show last July.  ;-)

On another topic, I've had Ghostwirters' Second Skin on backorder for about two
months from Whammo, and was just informed that they have received word it has
been deleted.  Has anybody else ordered it recently, if so from whom and were
you able to receive it?

Hey, I have an idea to prolong Oildom given the absence of future
releases...this only works for those of us who don't already HAVE everything
they've ever put out...buy 'em all now before they disappear, but only open one
per year.  Gives the rush of having "new" music from the Oils.  Can you tell
I'm still in denial?!
