1 stars Dear lord this is a bad bad album. Boring and derivative song writing, sub-par production, and terrible vocals all conspire to make getting through this album an absolute chore.

This album wastes little time in ensuring you can appreciate how bad it will be. In fact, by the second full length song, 'What Else Now,' the singer, by dramatically repeating ad nauseum the refrain "Scenes from a memory", seems hell bent on insisting that the listener compare his album to the incomparably superior album of the same name. A little bit of self-awareness on the part of this band would have, among other things, gone along way in avoiding this most unflattering comparison.

Given the paltry number of Spotify listeners and the aforementioned production quality, I initially gave these guys the benefit of the doubt: surely this was some kind of debut or sophomore record for an up and coming bad. As it turns out, this band has been around since the 90's! But I guess if the band mates are happy doing this, then more power to them. Just don't expect the rest of us to relish along with them.
