This is a stunning debut album from Aaron Buchanan and the Cult Classics.

The headline? A gleamingly polished production, superb musicianship and a killer performance from each and every member on an album that does not leave wanting. Remove any preconceptions you night have. This is a band to watch.
Chasing The Sun is a radio friendly album. That’s its curse and blessing. It’s too safe but it’s also full of catchy tunes. I’m going to give this album a 7 based on the positive aspects of being radio friendly.
Like I said in the beginning: “Interlude” is a really good compilation for die-hard-fans, who can’t wait for the next studio album and it’s also a good start for those of you, who haven’t heard of this fantastic band before. The whole package is completed with a DVD, so you get enough value for your money.
The London based alt. metal band, Breed 77 are back with their fourth release “The Evil Inside”, and for fans of the band, I am glad to say that this record is a blast. Initially, as listening to “The Evil Inside”, one cannot help but compare the band to the likes of Drowning Pool, SOiL, but as you continue to listen, you see that Breed 77, although sharing some similarities with these bands, their record does in fact stand out on its own merits.
there’s also some arty stuff that reminds me of the B52’s and R.E.M. I also find the odd occasion that I am reminded of Aussie band HOODOO GURUS or weird rockers WEEZER and even some HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS.
In what I personally consider a very clever move, the first ten seconds of the opening track CORNUCOPIA are very SYSTEM OF A DOWN in style and even though the rest of the song doesn’t quite follow suit, the SOAD vibe has already been imbedded in your head…
Two-minutes into BREATHLESS and I was mentally transported right back to early nineties when bands like FAITH NO MORE, LIVING COLOR and EXTREME were making waves across the music industry…
Seriously folks, if this is the future of rock ‘n’ roll, then finally we can all get excited again, because this sort of stuff I would listen to everyday without a problem. Within the first two songs of this album I could hear elements of bands like QUEEN, LED ZEPPELIN, BAD COMPANY and some more modern influences like MIKA, THE DARKNESS and THE KILLERS…
