"A style that rivals Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc," says the publicity blurb. Well... there's more metal than grunge here. Never mind, for the band's Tim Bushong and Greg Purlee write good songs and with studio maestros John and Dino Elefante gating the guitars until they sound like they'd slice through concrete, 'Soak Your Brain' is an exciting rock album. Outstanding is the title track ("Dig a little bit deeper/Is it all a game?/Take a swim in the Truth/Now soak your brain.") It may not be Hemmingway but it kicks.

The most obvious influences are Extreme, King's X and Guardian. It is strong, but a bit manufactured to be like the above bands. Contrived but still cool, technical but with enough guts to satisfy any rocker.
