A Place Called Home
I can't quite make up my mind on these guys. They are inspired, to say the least. This CD is a collection of aggressive rock songs, some leaning more towards punk sounding. It is a pretty easy listen, with smooth progressions and tricky, serious lyrics. It almost sounds like one of those old metal singers trying to do punk at times. Every song is a soaring, dedicated effort. I liked the first track, "Who Sold Out Now?" It didn't really inspire me to run around yelling, but they seem to be advocates for several causes. I'd like to hear more from them.
