We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
This has been an incredible year thus far for new music and this month has seen some amazing releases as well, the only trouble I have is being able to possibly cover all of it--I am trying to get more reviewed.

The video below is the title track and first video from the album 
                                       "New Day Rising"
This like a great many bands that I am reviewing here over the years is my first time hearing. However this is their 6th studio album. Just amazed I have not heard them before , sure am glad I am hearing them now-this is a fantastic album all around.

This is a more modern rock music album than what is usually reviewed here. This is a very commercial album , but so , so good as well.

                             Here is the lyric video for my 
                             favorite song on the album
                                              "Trouble" 
The mix of contempary rock music and pop music is quite refreshing here and the lyrics and vocals are what really build the strength here , as well as the great musicianship.If you don't believe have a listen to some of their music from the videos I have shared here in this review.

They have some great talent for creating some inspiring music and thoughtful lyrics that are more than power ballads like "Love Burns". I cannot possibly count how many times I have listened to this album, not just singular songs but the entire album , what a treat it is!

                             Below is a song from their last album
                                           "Insomniac"
I searched You Tube for many of their videos are there from their past albums and I share yet another from their previous album as it is a beautiful song , musically and vocally.


Thank you for reading this 
Sincerely
Anthony Nadeau
