A three-track single from a Belfast band who are keeping their options open. The title track is a nu-metal blast complete with soaring chorus, blazing guitars and passionate vocals. A female - under the influence of Alanis/Jennifer Knapp - takes over on the funk bass led "Make Me", before her male counterpart resumes control on ambitious string-wrapped ballad "Not "Alone". The simple, heartfelt lyrics won't have you reaching for the dictionary, but that's not a bad thing (just ask Creed - an obvious reference point). All the royalties go to help house street orphans in Carani, Romania. Buy this or wait for the band's 'Broken' album due for release in February.
