Some kind words about Catharsis from Brooklyn Vegan:
“North Carolina’s Catharsis released just two albums before breaking up in 2002 (they later reunited, but not for new music), 1997’s Samsara and 1999’s Passion. Both are great, genre-defying works with powerful lyricism that blends the personal and the political (Passion even dabbles in reggae), and either one could have made this list. I went with their debut, on which they knocked it out of the park on first try.” (sic)
