Second full length album by Flickerstick
Re-released by Epic
after they were signed. The band was not happy that the album got a cursory remastering
and quick drop to retail. Their intent had been to use the album (recorded for $10,000 of their own money) to get a label deal and then rerecord it with a name producer
in a high end facility. Epic was only marginally supportive of the band, and gladly let them out of their contract after a year and a half of limbo.
They are a solid band with a mature sound and great songwriting skills. Theycould live comfortably in the same bin as bands like Matchbox 20 and Fuel, in terms of sound. They have a song-centric approach, eschewing flashy solos and pyrotechnics in favor of tight cohesive tracks. There is a strong Floydian influence, but it is not derivative.
