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

Krief ~ Chemical Trance

  This album went into different directions for me. This starts off with a psychedelic 1960’s Pink Floyd sound, then as the album continues, it goes off into a John Lennon sound. At first I wasn’t quite there with it, … Continue reading
