Ooh, and another remarkable thing about this album is that every song on
it works out great live, and Now or Never Land tops the list IMHO.  What
a great song.  You just sort of stand there and let it wash over you -
the whole audience is affected, Workers and casual listeners alike, and
by the time they get to the ending chant everybody is practically
hyp-mo-tized.  I'm eternally grateful they played that at my last Oily
concert, Bones and Rob were in superb form.  *sniff* - Beth

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.
has a real sensuality coming through that I don't hear quite as much on
albums (not saying it's ABSENT, just not as obvious).  Judging from the
"best fave/least fave" survey on here awhile ago, I may be one of the
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
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
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
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
I'm still in denial?!
