4.0 out of 5 stars Piano pop/rock at its best, 24 Dec 2004
This review is from: Straylight Run (Audio CD)
If you like bands like Something Corporate then this is for you. Tracks 2, 3 and 5 are really great uplifting tracks with catchy choruses and great lyrics. The vocals are crisp and clear - sometimes even haunting at certain points and really work well together - especially the injection of the female vocalist which adds depth and rounds off any harsh edges the tracks could have retained. You will not be disappointed - a real gem that you will be glad you came across !

4.0 out of 5 stars Originality at its best, 17 Nov 2004
I first got hooked on this CD by listening to the track 'A favour house atlantic' in a mates car. The album grows and grows and you start liking pretty much every single track - not one of the songs really follows a traditional pattern which makes for a really refreshing sound that screams originality. I then bought the 'Second Stage Turbine' C&C's first album which while good does not match the superior production and growth that the band demontrate on this album. If anyone finds it hard to follow the story behind the albums the band have brought out a comic book which explains a lot - you can order it from the bands website.
In Keeping... is a great epic track and the choir at the end make this track seem huge
The Crowing - great
Blood Red Summer - great, bit more poppy one of the easier tracks to get into
Favour House Atlantic - my fav on the album
Velorium Camper tracks - ok but by no means the best
If your into bands like Funeral for a Friend, Jimmy Eat World, Hell is for Heros etc then this will be a good album to have as a nice alternative listen - it will become a fav in you CD player !
