There was a short period in time when I thought Poi Dog Pondering were great. I remember playing Wishing Like a Mountain and Thinking Like the Sea a lot... and awful lot. I bought the follow up album (Volo Volo) and am not sure I've ever even listened to it once. The time came and went. I remember seeing them at the Powerhaus around then as well... I enjoyed that to. It's probably 15 years or more since I last listened to this and it was like listening to someone else's past. It is nothing like anything I like now and nothing like anything I was into back then either ... I really can't figure it out at all. There are some nice tunes and some funny/thoughtful lyrics. But that's almost irrelevant. I don't hate it... I just have no feelings at all for it. It's a stranger.
