All too Often

Back in the day (mid 90’s), several people I knew disapproved of Discount. I’m not sure why – this was a long time before Alison Mosshead had a real career with the Kills and now Dead Weather. I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but they would have benefited from slowing the songs down a little. The vocals are delivered too fast and wind up sounding thin and one-dimentional. This single is cool, but a full length like this would probably get boring. They released several other singles and at least two LP’s and had something of a national presence.
