Gothic Beauty 
'Crown of Thorns' (Issue 1; Oct, 2000)

Odor of Pears is a sensational three person band putting together some of the most dyanic and powerful music I've come across yet.  Crown of Thorns features eight songs.  Track two 'Cage' actually brought me to goosebumps.  Diana Blackwell's voice brings strong emotions and is in control.  She's backed by a structured soundscape that blends smoothly and compliments her vocals.  This album is easily one of the finest I've had the pleasure to review.  If you're a fan of strong and passion-filled female vocals like I am, this disc is worth getting your hands on to add to your collection.  This is something you won't easily forget.  -- Constantine
