Reviewed by Tony Cummings

An excellent band who’ve built up a following in their Australian homeland and are now pitched into the international marketplace by the Here To Him Music Group. Modern rock with interspersions of rap, they’re not as heavy as P.O.D. but still kick up plenty of guitar-propelled energy while the best of their songs, like the hooky “I Will”, the slow and sonorous “Falling Forward” and the semi-spoken “Superhero”, all stand out from the crowd. Lead singer Bryan Alexis emotes with plenty of passion while Matthew Balch’s guitar work is satisfyingly edgy. Will Tinman Jones be following the yellow brick road to CCM bigtime? I know not. But they’re good.

All the members of Tinman Jones are Americans, not Australians. Just figured I'd clarify that.
