Alf's first album "Alf" is pretty good.  It's worth buying for "Love
Resurrection", "Honey for the Bees" and "Invisible".  However, I don't
think it is as good as her Yazoo albums.

Her second album, "Raindancing", is most definitely avoidable.  "Weak
in the Presence of Beauty" and one other song (whose name I can't
recall) are the only two worth listening to...the rest is filler.

The Andrew Message System (that's the incredible high-tech mail system
we have here at CMU) will not allow you to change the name on messages
you send or post.  This is a deliberate decision by the people who
wrote the software.  Sorry.
