If music be the food of love, then this album is like a symphony at a buffet at a free love convention. Take your ears out for a lovely dinner with the all-ballad album that Hoolifans have been eagerly awaiting for years! Featuring all love songs all the time (mostly), this album shows off delicate guitar and piano, and touching vocal harmonies. Listen to it with someone you love! You'll need them for emotional support.

Special Thanks:

To our wives, girlfriends, mistresses, and children(?!?!) for putting up with our recording schedule; to Kenny Miltenberger for playing that sax like he’s loving a dragon; to Donna “Young Donald” Korn for violins, viola, and sexual tension; to Christopher Hughes for adding bass to a band full of baritone; to Nicole Mullins for artwork, graphic design, and coming around to our idea of “romantic”; to Shannon Cooley for our erotic yet tasteful cover photo; and to Tim O’Kane for continuing to not sue us. Special thanks to every Proud Enabler who has ever bought us a round of drinks. You are the real heroes.
