many, many flavors of Rock

Lets be clear: if the songs sucked there would be no point in writing this. They don’t. Quality , well written, catchy songs. Its how they deliver them that got my attention.

I hear many obvious influences: Black Keys, Jack White, Muse. But that is not all, for sure. There are moments when The Blue Stones venture from early 70s Brit blues-rock to full on Melvins-like fuzz within 1 song, yet it doesnt feel so jarring like that sort of thing tends to be. Instead, while each song stands on its own the whole album feels cohesive.

My only real gripe with this album is the drums. I understand everything is 100% digital now, but why, why , why must the drums be triggered?!?
Overall, Id say this is a good representation of where rock music is headed. The Blue Stones might only be "The Next Big Band!" like Ive been seeing ,or they may also be the ones who go a little further into the stratosphere. Too soon to say, but this is a great first effort.

great music

I've been listening to these guys for a couple of years now. Do yourself a favor and buy this. Its a steal at $7.99.

Terrific!

The most cohesive AOR type of album I’ve heard in a long, long, time. It’s cover to cover good. The pacing of the album is excellent. No filler. No track hopping. “Airlock/The Drop” sets the tone and 40 min later you hit “Magic” at the end and it just feels complete. Don’t listen to it on shuffle, don’t just grab the three tracks iTunes says are the most popular. You’re missing out.

If you search on YouTube you can find a live-studio gig on AudioTree. They are for real. And it’s a drummer and a guitarist. Crazy.

I like it in the same way, but for different reasons, that I like to listen to Collective Soul’s self titled first album straight through.

I grab songs off Apple streams all the time. It’s very rare that I find 2-3 other songs from the same band that I like. It’s darn near unheard of that I wind up buying the whole album and then listen to it every day for 2 weeks...
