This guitar-based four-piece hail from Pensacola, Florida and are a surprisingly mellow and melodic bunch compared to some of their label-mates. Potentially good material is somewhat spoilt by a less than enthusiastic delivery and shallow production. Lyrically the band show some promise with thoughtfully explored themes to "This Town Will Eat You" and "Indian In Your Eyes" but even so as a whole the album is something of a disappointment. Also 30 minutes is a bit of a short-sell for an album these days guys! I hope they come back with a second CD that blows the socks off this one, I think they could if they really wanted to.

i have never been to this site before...but, if i am reading correctly, this album (regulate the chemicals) was rated with a 4 star (out of 10)...and quite frankly, that annoys me. this album should never get any rating under an 8, whether you like it or not! i'd say 10, but that is just cus i am a fan, and i love it...but, even if you dont like it, you have to appreciate the witty & inspiring lyrics and guitar licks.
