Rating: 3.5/5

Formed in < ?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Vancouver in 2004 and signing a record deal the following year, this four pieced band write songs that are uniquely familiar to the ears. Since their format just two years ago they have played well over 200 shows and traveled countless kilometers, earning them a loyal army of fans.

This 10 track disc features nine rocking originals and a cover of The Guess Who’s “No Time”. This cover of the Canadian classic is very cool with its heavy overtones. It sounds a bit slower than the original but it has a bit of a Sabbath feel to it. Very different and cool. Other highlights on the disc include the opening cut “Dashboard Baby Jesus” and the first single “No One Gives”. Even the Alice In Chains sounding “Lost In Travel” is worth the listen.

While not overly original, it does posses a lot of potential. A little less obvious influences showing on some songs would make this one killer album.
