3 stars Now trying to find 3 are quite a challenge, especially online, with the name of the band being a number, quite a common number if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, I did search online for this album, saying that Newry is like a bottomless pit when it comes to music (only found the new Hawkwind album yesterday in my local hmv, even though the album was out a month before).

This album is very enjoyable, and the 3 sound is very strong. The material has it's ups and downs, with the odd filler song now and then, but you can expect that. This isn't their best by far, but there is still some great songs on it.

What attracted me to this band was that the lead singer (Joey Eppard, who has the exact same vocal range as me, but destroys me in timbre leauges)'s brother is Joshua Eppard, who used to play drums for Coheed & Cambria, one of my all time favourite prog bands. They do have an odd Coheed & Cambria vibe (with the slightly high vocals, but not too much), but they have this amazing sound, and with Joey Eppards incredibly unique style of guitar playing, mixing flamenco with a more fierce percussive sound (not just hitting the guitar like Thomas Lebe)

1. Alien Angel - Pretty cool start off song. Quite and cathcy and very rocking. 9/10

2. Monster - A slightly more metal direction. Pretty kick ass and a great chorus. 9/10

3. Dregs - Some out of this world guitar playing, and I love Joey's little Prince scream at the start. Best song on the album in my opinion. 10/10

4. Wake Pig - Great song with some interesting lyrics. 8/10

5. Bramfatura - This just proves Joey's playing abillity. 10/10

6. Trust - A wee bit filler to be honest. Still okay though. 7/10

7. Dogs Of War - A great mix of acoustic and rocking beats. Great song, with a cool chorus. 9/10

8. Soul To Sell - Short and sweet. 8/10

9. One Way Town - Pretty interesting song. Great chorus. 8/10

10. Queen - Very filler. Can't even remember it. 6/10

11. Circus Without Clowns - Was expecting a little more from this song, but it failed to dilliver to be honest. 7/10

12. Where's Max - Pretty kick ass bass playing. Very eccentric but very awesome. 10/10

13. Amaze Disgrace - Another classic 3 song. Some interesting vocal melodies and instrumental sections. Very cool. 10/10

CONCLUSION: Has quite a bit of filler, but you get over it, it's still pretty great.
