Holy heck…!

…this is a gosh darn good album. I like the songs on it. Heard these guys live recently, and they played a heck of a dang good live show with some other songs that aren't on this album. I have to say I'm looking forward to the next release (whenever that may be lol) after hearing them live, and after giving this album a few listens I'm even more amped up for anything I can get my hands on by these talented young men. My wife and I really enjoy Doomsday and Omega, but I personally can't get enough of Protostar. Don't know what it is. Maybe it's the moving synthesizer notes, or the beautiful, swooping vocals. Maybe it's that it reminds me of when I used to jam with the guys in the garage back in high school. Those were the days. Jamie played guitar. He was always kind of a rebel sort, but pretty dang good on the Gibson. Kind of a rich punker, I know, an oxymoron of sorts, but he fought pretty hard to maintain his image. Then there was Bennet, who was our drummer. He was a gosh darn good percussionist if I have to be honest, and he could play a mean heavy rock beat if he had to lay one down (which he never did thank heavens). Then there was Oscar, our vocalist and lyricist. He was somewhat of a lush, always sneaking cough syrup from his mother's medicine cabinets. Okay okay, I'm just kidding. He had a chronic illness, it turns out. We always gave him a heck of a hard time about having to down a dose of syrup before the practices though. He said it helped his singing. We knew his mother insisted, though. Poor kid. We looked at our teasing as a way of helping him kinda fit in with the boys, ya know? We were always giving one another a good ribbing about something or another. I hope it helped, Oscar. Anyway, his lyrics mostly pertained to standing up against the man (per Jamie's request) and floating high atop clouds and other surreal imagery. It was rather bizarre but interesting, sometimes inspiring. And then there was me, the band keyboardist. Yeah, I was never officially trained, but I rocked as intensely as I could. I learned by listening. Playing by ear. I'm a natural musician, you see. I can tell when a good melody needs to be conjured into the current rhythms. I'm a jackal in waiting. A cheetah waiting to pounce. Secretly, quietly, patiently waiting. And then I strike. With the ferocity of a noble eagle i plunge downward my fingers onto the keys and rock a melody so swimmingly delicious that nobody can stand to deny our songs to their ears.

Ah, but I digress. This album is quite delightful, needless to say. Hope these guys get a keyboardist soon. I tried talking to them after their last show to tell them I was interested, but they kindly denied my request. Even paid for a taxi cab ride to take me home. Such nice, talented young men!
