    Totally has ELO written all over it and pieces of hooks borrowed from the Beatles. A huge mix of instrumentation and vocal arrangements Totally has ELO written all over it and pieces of hooks borrowed from the Beatles. A huge mix of instrumentation and vocal arrangements demand some attention here; but the pay off is ample. I gave it 4 solid listens and now I'm hooked. One thing though- maybe it's just me but: The vocals are impeccable in an almost annoying way. It's like the singer is fake at times. Full Review »

    Decent sophomore effort. Been the main CD I've been listening to for the last week that I've had it. Different (but good) sound Decent sophomore effort. Been the main CD I've been listening to for the last week that I've had it. Different (but good) sound from the 1st album. I agree with reviews it sounds like they spent months discovering the Beatles. Although, as much as I like it, I feel the wheels drop off at track 11. Though 10 good, catchy tunes out of 15 isn't shabby. Worth the price? Yes. Full Review »
