August 2000

The album design is very simple and attractive. When you open the 4-page insert you see pictures of family, and thanks to family members. When you look at the band line-up, you’ll see it’s really only two people, so immediately you know this is a made-for-studio band. Not a bad thing, just being observant. I will also mention that after listening into the album a little bit you start to hear a lot of familiar sounds. The vocals represent about 75% (maybe more) of the male rock vocalists out there right now. It’s a typical 90’s Seattle rock sound. The songs are definitely original sounding, written very well. The recording quality is almost there. It is still something I could sit and listen to a couple times through without it driving me nuts. I can still hear several things that keep it from matching a professional level.

Track 5 comes out of the wood works with some very nice finger style guitar playing…too bad it’s only a minute long. Track 9 and 10 are the same key and follows the same chord progression. May want to consider a capo, or just moving to another slot on the album. Eliah needs to become a full-fledged band and get out there. I know there is still a market for their sound, and they will learn some very valuable things about their sound in the meantime. Keep going at what you are doing.

Favorite Track: 9, “??”
