Fusebox has been described as a cross between Sonicflood and Lenny Kravitz and listening to this, their debut release, I can understand why. Extra kudos for the band comes with a guest appearance by Rebecca St James, for whom they have played support recently, and they are due to continue to tour with her during the rest of 2002. As for the CD, it's nearly 50 minutes of music, with a mix of new and "great modern worship songs" (according to the Elevate Music website ElevateRecords.com). The only problem in being compared to existing megastars and bands is whether or not one has the ability to live up to expectations, and whilst Fusebox have a little way to go to emulate Sonicflood (at least in SF's first incarnation), this is good, punchy (if slightly derivative) power pop praise. A promising debut, these guys might be a band to watch.
