"Positively Nelsons - No More Tumble Weed"

The duo of Stephanie "Empress Auset" Nelson and Arvian "Sparkles" Nelson records as Positively Nelsons, and No More Tumble Weed is an impressive debut. Although they do tend to get a little bit preachy, they're so charmingly open-hearted that it's easy to forgive the sometimes finger-wagging tone of the lyrics. Sparkles is a particularly gifted lead vocalist, as she demonstrates on the lovely "Black Man" and "Tumble Weed." There is also some very fine deejay work on "Four Options," though it's not clear which sister is doing the toasting. The instrumental backing is synthesized and sometimes a bit on the cold side. Recommended overall. - Rick Anderson - niceup.com
