Quality of Songs 10 out of Ten
Four tracks of power, passion and exhilarating melody that will have you reaching for the volume control to test out that sacred point on the knob that you reserve for something special, no.10.
Track one, faultless kicks off like a 100m sprint and with so much force it will make your walls bulge, the second track Written all over starts of a little bit more mellow allowing you to catch your breath before you are plunged into a raging tempest on the high seas, all powerful stuff, and ain't for the feeble minded.
Track three, The Callow is an explosive emotional release that will convince you to honour this cd for a vey long time.
And finally track four Wires and Soul, massive power driven along by the explosive drumming, driving guitars and screaming vocals is a brilliant final to this bands Debut EP CD.
All my friends are strangers, released on the 24th of Feb 2003 is a must for your music collection, make sure you get a spare copy for the car, why ? Because it makes your car go faster and drive better, of course!
