album is a kaleidoscope of soundscapes swooping and soaring seamlessly
through a number of distinct genres - From Anastasia-like power-pop
/ funky soul to RATM / Red Hot Chilli Pepper-esque, attitude-dripping
rap, This CD has something for everyone! Dig deeper than the cool
musical veneer and you'll be touched by the depth and social awareness
of the lyrics - some heavy stuff is covered by this album, from
drug addiction (Red Hot) and physical abuse (Running),
to lamenting the ridiculous "politically correct", litigation-hungry
society (Snapshots) we all now live in.
As I was brought up on a staple diet of heavy metal and psychedelic
rock, this ready-for-the-mainstream collection of diversely flavoured
tracks shouldn't really appeal to me - BUT THEY DO!!! The talent
and intensity of Dana Shellmire & her band demands you to listen
to this CD from start to finish on a daily basis, so get yourself
a copy and go listen to it NOW!!
