Gosh, what I have waited for this album with Paul Durham and his BlackLab. I really thought it was stuck at Sony that stopped ?See The Sun? just before its release a few years ago. But thanks to their brilliant lawyer Adam Ritholz the album is now the bands own property and can be bought at their official website. And this is a very safe card my friends, a very strong and consistent effort that any fan of ?You Body Above Mine? will adore. This is even better than it?s precursor with killers like the energy kicks ?Without You?, ?Perfect Girl? and the very beautiful ?hit?,? ?Lonely Boy?. And why not mention ?Remember?, ?Tell Me Why? and the title track that all are perfect pure modern rock? I really feel sorry for BlackLab that was so close of getting this out on a major label. There are no guaranties that it would have been a big success, but the album has with its single tracks a lot of potential with the right promotion on radio and tv. A safe buy for fans of U2, Radford and Dishwalla!!!

fuckin kick ass! if they could get a damn record label to sign them they would be back to the top of the charts. although the the thing this band has that that other top ten crap doesnt is substance. sure any lame emo band who wears wierd makeup and sounds like they are singing on helium can up up with a song about how patheticly miserable they are because their girlfriend dumped them and somehow make it on the charts. this band is much better, the lyrics sound like they had years of careful thought and elegance put into them. like i said before the lyrics have substance and character and go with the other vibrant musical elements perfectly. the band utilizes some untraditional instramentals with the keyboard in songs such as "wide open" and "remember". this mixes the music up and expands the modern rock genre almost adding some techno beats (they have expirimented with this in the song "this blood" for the Blade Trinity soundtrack. Anyways BL is back with full force and i would highly recomend checking out their new site: www.blacklabworld.com they got some sweet merch and this mp3 of the month club so u can check out all the the bands musical expirements of the past few years for a low price
