Scott Mackin
all the lights were plainly green
March 2003

Here is a very obvious independent record. The picture on the cover is very cool…showing the top of an old car sticking up out of the sand on a beach. The insert booklet is a hand-made 8-page creation, done very well considering. I am going to get right into being critical on the recording. I heard a combination of good and horrible technique. I heard phasing issues, improper distances from instruments, however it is very consistent throughout.

I can hear that the songwriting is very good. I like the songs. Scott is definitely going in the right direction, but has a way to go still in capturing the true essence of his sound. I would gladly give direction and suggestions if they are open. But the sound is just not solid. The drumming falls out of time from start to finish. Practice with a metronome. I will give this album a general thumbs up for a good attempt. Keep it up!

Favorite Track: 1 (however, needs some work), “Here I Go”
