2 stars The opener song of their debut album.

If you know this American band called the Secret Machines I am almost sure that you are familiar with "First Wave Intact" which is the introductory song off their debut album. This was actually the first song I ever listened from them and caught my attention.

It's almost ten minutes of psychedelic and spacey repetitions, if you can get into the first two minutes then you will enjoy the song because it either can be addictive or boring. The vocals are good the drums always the same but the synthesizer effects are awesome, while the song is playing you will be transported to another galaxy, the spacey sounds are very cool. The guitar is very nice and well played, nothing outstanding though.

Not so much to say about this single, I like this song, for that I believe this deserves at least two stars, but I would recommend you listening this on youtube or another site before purchasing the single. Two stars, just for fans.

Enjoy it!
