I've been trying to write a review for this but it keeps turning into a rambling therapy session about why it is that every time my brother calls, I hope it's with news about how the inimical, toxic shrew that is our mother finally offed herself. It's not even that I'm hesitant about vomiting so much of my ugliness into the vast, nameless internets so much as it is that if I'm gonna take this route to a review, I'm gonna take my time and do it proper.
