Long Distance Calling ~ How We Want To Live

This band is really good. Starting off with talking to set your album up doesn’t work for me, but, the music that followed the 1st track, was great. This is a really fine album. It seems Long Distance Calling gets … Continue reading

Tangent ~ Auto Reconnaissance

  I am a big fan of the Tangent. This album did let me down a bit. It was mostly the song where Andy has a conversation throughout the song. The music in the background is very well done, as … Continue reading
