The album design is very simple and attractive.
When you open the 4-page insert you see pictures of family,
and thanks to family members. When you look at the band line-up,
you’ll see it’s really only two people, so immediately you
know this is a made-for-studio band. Not a bad thing, just
being observant. I will also mention that after listening
into the album a little bit you start to hear a lot of familiar
sounds. The vocals represent about 75% (maybe more) of the
male rock vocalists out there right now. It’s a typical 90’s
Seattle rock sound. The songs are definitely original sounding,
written very well. The recording quality is almost there.
It is still something I could sit and listen to a couple
times through without it driving me nuts. I can still hear
several things that keep it from matching a professional
Track 5 comes out of the wood works with some very nice
finger style guitar playing…too bad it’s only a minute long.
Track 9 and 10 are the same key and follows the same chord
progression. May want to consider a capo, or just moving
to another slot on the album. Eliah needs to become a full-fledged
band and get out there. I know there is still a market for
their sound, and they will learn some very valuable things
about their sound in the meantime. Keep going at what you
