Australian pop band playing real instruments and creating an acoustic driven sound with a few touches of rock and blues and a bit of a jazzy feel here and there. OK, not the most fluid description but here's a band doing some nice things vocally and writing competent songs. However it all sounds a little bit old fashioned and there isn't much here that makes me want to listen to the album repeatedly. It's all good but nothing that stops me in my tracks. Sound quality is good for an independent product but it ends up sounding like something that could have been made in the '70s or '80s. Songs like "Journey Of Faith" and "Babies Eyes" are catchy enough and if you like adult pop rock then this will appeal.
