Well how amusing to put this in a review, but I first heard Radford on those cheap headphones on an American Airlines flight from Chicago to Los Angeles. The two Radford songs on the "alternative rock" airline channel were "Don't Stop" and "Fly" (although they mistyped and wrote "Stop" and "Don't Fly", how 180 degrees and ironic). I was hooked and upon landing immediately went to the music store to purchase the Radford disc. Now it has not left the cd player of my car.
Radford is an extremely versatile group of talented musicians. I say this without much knowledge of them as individuals, I wish I would have heard of them earlier and would have had an opportunity to check them out live, but if they perform anywhere close to the sound they have produced on this album, I would not be disappointed. Their songs range from a hard alternative style to haunting ballads, with an equally wide range of lyrical material.
As it seems that there are more and more grunge and alternative bands coming out of the woodwork these days, I find it harder and harder to find a band that I both like period, and ESPECIALLY one that I like an entire disc of. I am tired of buying cd's that have only two or three good songs on them...Radford has proven to be a cherished buy for me. I listen to it no matter what mood I am in, and no matter who is in the car with me. I highly recommend this disc.
