CD Review: Cimino-Angels & Animals(Head First Entertainment)-Available Now!

Band's Bio:
Most easily classified as Rock and Roll, CIMINO has been classed as Post-Grunge and Alternative Rock, with ballads that even cross over the lines of Pop. However, they most often fall into the category of Hard Rock. When reviewed, CIMINO is commonly compared to bands including: Shinedown, Buckcherry, and Alice In Chains, yet there always seems to be one thing separating CIMINO from the current rock scene.

There are some good songs on this album but we have heard this time and time again. From Poison to Motley Crue , Velvet Revolver you can clearly hear the influences they have taken from those mentioned bands.
I do like this album but do not love it by any means

"Fame" is a song that is either censored on the album or just cutting the word off in the lyrics, takes away from the song as that would bring some depth to the song a bit more, instead it takes away.
Turn around and then the song "Never" comes around and easily one of the better songs on the album , the lyrics , vocals and the ballad of it all it does play well and everything works on this one.

"Start All Over" is the song that will get them noticed if it has not already, radio friendly and standard rock formation song for sure.
Have a look at the video below:

This is not a negative review at all even though it may read that way in a world where the majority of what is played on the radio is electronic nonsense I applaud this group of young men keeping Rock N Roll alive , honest.
They are all in their 20's have more determination than I did when I was their age, never had an interest in being in a band , mind you.

"Sick" has a great riff throughout the song and some crazy guitar and bass work as well as the drums , great party song.
I have to say as the album is played more as this took a few days to get this review done -internet problems.

Thank you for reading this
