Izz ~ Half Life EP

  OK, This is a great piece of music. One problem…it’s an EP, so, for me, it’s too short. After hearing these 4 songs, I really wanted to hear more. Everything on here was just about perfect. The keyboards, the … 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
