I’ve had this CD for awhile (promo copy) and got to see the band live in a small venue. If you like pure, hard rock’in, you’ll enjoy most every song. The editorial reviewer is obviously a music snob & doesn’t appreciate music for what it’s worth. The 1st reviewer is also a screwball – there is nothing here anywhere that remotely sounds like Blink 182 or Semisonic. This band has similarities to Creed both in the vocals and guitar work. But, the music is a little more upbeat & the vocals more sincere. The format of their songs is similiar to an Oleander or Fuel album. The lyrics/choruses are catchy and make you want to sing along. If you like those bands, you’ll enjoy this CD (alot). I have over 1,500 CDs of all types of music & this is one of the best of the hard rock CDs esp. for a band that’s not yet established.
