We were so knocked out by this band's sophomore album, "Next Round", that we had to track down their self-titled debut. We were not disappointed! These New Jersey-natives know '70s rock like no one else and are masters at replicated the sound and spirit of that era. Led by vocalist/guitarist Todd McCullough the four-piece move through 11 solid self-penned tunes including the southern-fired "Keep It Rollin'", the Humble Pie-inspired "Satisfied" and Zeppelin-meets-Black Crowes "Same Old Line". More southern rock than "Next Round", the group inject plenty of texture into their hot licks. They can easily move from "Presence of Mind" with its acoustic, laid-back summer-time weave to "Rock N' Roll Thru My Head" dripping with good ol' honest sweat. The nearly seven-minute epic "I'm Still Missing You" defines the album with its acoustic build into an electric crescendo of Mountain-like proportions. The Stones classic "Stray Cat Blues" fits nicely into the mix sounding just as fresh and inspiring as it did on Beggars Banquet. Stevie Ray Vaughan's influence sneaks in with "On Your Knees" where Free pops up in the groovy "If I Could Speak My Mind", especially in the Andy Fraser-like bass groove. They are at their best when jamming out twin guitar harmonies in "Nothing To Lose" or embracing the swampy blues of "Clear" and the country-picking jam of "See The Light".
