I recently heard Spoken's self-titled album for the first time, and I was very impressed with it. I kinda lost interest in them after A Moment of Imperfect Clarity, and I ended up skipping over Last Chance To Breathe. But I popped in Spoken, and it blew me away. It made me think that they might make it back in my list of bands I like. It reminded me of when I liked them before, as I enjoyed listening to to Echoes of the Spirit Still Dwell, with it's loudness, rawness, and the occasional rapped lyrics. "This Path" was my first encounter with Spoken, and it's still one of my favorite Spoken songs. But there's also highlights to be found through the rest of the album as well. In fact, half of their greatest hits album that followed Echoes... were actually songs from Echoes... If you like Spoken now, and you haven't heard this one, look it up somewhere. It'll be worth your while. ~ Scott Fryberger
