Darwin's Waiting Room is simply cool, fun music.  DWR uses a strong rap influence, however (thankfully), it does not dominate the raw rock'n'roll that is this band's forte. Strong musical expression and thought-provoking lyrics make this band a musical force to be reckoned with. Sometimes, however, those same lyrics drag down the tempo of this otherwise awesome CD. DWR are cool rock hard and steady. I can't wait to see their live show! This CD kicks ass.  

Check out the band at for more info.
