Goodnight Tonight

Watch the Rain

Review by Gary Hill

I love this EP. It’s not overly original, but it just works really well. The sound ranges from near metal to modern pop and more. The vocals are what really sell it, though. The female vocals are quite special. They convey emotion and rock and make this whole thing gel.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 5 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
The Only Thing I Know

This hard rocker is intense, energized and yet melodic. I love the vocals on the tune. The whole thing is accessible and yet meaty.

Poison
Another killer hard rocker, the lyrics to this one are powerful. I love this song. It’s definitely got a catchy hook and a potent message. It’s almost metallic at the same time.   
Thunderstorm
A bit mellower and more melodic, this has a lot in common with epic metal. It’s a lot like a power ballad. It’s also a great piece of music. The mellower sections really have a lot of magic.
Because of You
Alternative rock mixes with modern pop rock on this tune. It’s catchy, but perhaps not the kind of killer tune we’ve gotten accustomed to by this point.
Lieutenant James
Hook laden and hard rocking, this is more along the lines of modern pop music. It’s definitely a step up from the last one, though.
Back On My Feet Again
This is a very sad song. It’s more or less a power ballad and a strong one at that. It’s a great way to end things in style.
