AllMusic Review by Tom Schulte

The title Tales of Madness and Horror suggests the pathos of the surreal, but this wonderfully witty album opens with the inherent oddness of bathos, "American Dinner Party" and the ecological ode "Canopy Man." But, things do get really weird, only later. Amy Ray (Indigo Girls) and others join McHugh's band, the Crafties, for catchy, odd pop and freakish folk.
