Worry Dolls was the most successful of Devils Wielding Scimitars' three albums, but it wasn't quite a breakthrough. Similar to the Sundays, Edie Brickell, and 10,000 Maniacs, they never quite achieved the popularity of these peers. Once again, as with Curious Soul, Callahan's vocals are what stand out. A good diversity of material, from the folky jangle of "Feed the Shark" to the rockier "Blue Star Linoleum" and speed runs of "Fire Drill" and darker "Train a Calling." The one to seek out.
