From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars the Secret Machines are an exciting band, they offer very old-school psychadelic songs with excellent album organization.

I enjoy every track on this album, except for Nowhere Again, probobly because i've heard it so many times. The opening track, First Wave Intact, is shockingly powerful. The drumbeat is timeless and when the vocals start you know you're in for an excellent treat.

Sad and Lonely reminds me of some ballads from the 70's, definately in a good way, i love this track!!

The Leaves Are Gone is a trippy keyboard buzz with some excellent headphone effects

Nowhere Again, to me, is a boring song with little to offer, but their musicianship is acceptable, thats what makes the Secret Machine so listenable, their music is well constructed and their songs are written with care and thought.

The Road Leads Where Its At is another one of my favorites, the passionate vocals are haunting and it seems to go by in seconds.

Pharaoh's Daughter is another great track, its a bit slower than some of the other songs, but it builds into a piece of bliss straight from sonic/electronic heaven.

You Are Chains is another track that builds up slowly (and builds on you with repeated listens.)

Lights on and Now Here is Nowhere are two great tracks that pick up the pace and supply the ears with smooth guitar playing, emotional lyrics, and effects to boot!!

Pleasantly surprsing, Now Here is Nowhere is an excellent album that opens the curtains to a band with a big future.

(and Ten Silver Drops knocks the Secret Machines out of the park, its an amazing sophomore album)
