REVIEW: Spoken – Illusion

Artist: Spoken Album: Illusion Label: E1 Music Genre: Alt-Rock Contrary to popular belief, Spoken are still alive and well.

REVIEW: Icon For Hire – Scripted

Artist: Icon for Hire Album: Scripted Genre: Rock Label: Tooth & Nail Judging by their video for “Make A Move”, Icon for Hire are going for some kind of passionately visceral, punky, rebellious image – their lead singer Ariel is like a slightly less niche version of Emilie Autumn (I say this with love).

Falling Up – Fangs!

Artist: Falling Up Album: Fangs! Genre: Rock Label:  BEC Fangs!, by Falling Up is extremely well written, vocal driven rock.
