DRIVEBLIND

"Driveblind" (Geffen; 2006)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

Now and then a band like Driveblind comes along and renews your faith that mainstream rock can actually find a group to create an album that isn’t going to die a quick death because everyone but the band itself is involved in the project.

Driveblind have great vocals and they ease you into each song with acoustic guitars and friendly beats. The guitar is still here and it rocks in the required places. Each upbeat song has a tasty little solo. They do have an acoustic sound on “Autumn Red” but it’s so rich that if they plugged in it would loose the feeling.

It's fifty minutes of some of the freshest music I have heard in a long time.

The best songs are “Silhouette,” “Raised At Midnight,” “Tell Me,” and “The Fool Rises Again.”

Driveblind: Terry McDermott – vocals; Nicholas J. Tyler – guitars, background vocals; Cameron Taylor – acoustic guitars, background vocals; Jack Morrice – bass, David Nicholson – organ and piano; Dave McKay – drums.

Rating Guide:

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.
