"A Nation Distracted" (Self-released; 2011)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
NYC female fronted quintet Charetta doles out an emotionally charged five-song excursion demonstrating this burgeoning unit’s modern rock wares on "A Nation Distracted."
A powerful vocal presence of Angelina DelCarmen coupled with the combination of the band’s hard-hitting mainline metallic riffs and driving rhythms channel an amalgamation of Chevelle, Sevendust, and Evanescence (“Fighting Blind”) while a barrage of dramatic songwriting nuances and sweeping transitions assist this group to take their music to the next level (“Lights Out”).
Charetta’s latest musical output displays a handle on the mid-tempo malaise that commercial hard rock radio craves while containing a bevy of heavy hooks poised for mass adulation.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
