RA is without doubt one of the most original modern rock bands in the world today, they combine the mainstream formula made for radio with a sense of smart song structures and Sahaj´s unique melodies. Their 2 previous albums "From one" (2002) and "Duality" (2005) will remain modern rock classics for a long time, and now the band release their brand new studio album "Black sun" feat. 10 new tracks and the already known fan fave "Don´t turn away" from the live album "Raw" in 2006. The new single "Broken hearted soul" was available as free download around christmas 07 and that was the start sign for the long wait of this new album, a great song that set my expectations even higher for RA´s 3rd studio album "Black sun". But Sahaj and Co won´t disappoint this time either, the new songs contains huge choruses and crunchy guitar riffs just as I expected. "Faulty information" and "The first step" are my favorites but they change all the time so if you ask me again next month - I will name a few other song titles instead. Buy or die!
The entire album is wicked, and Genocide should have made it on some Terminator movie like they wanted. Faulty Information is sick too.

THE BEST BAND EVER.
EVEN BETTER LIVE. SAW THEM IN ST PETERSBURG FL.
AMAZING BAND. AWESOME TALENT. LOT OF POTENTIAL.
PEOPLE NEED TO EXPERIENCE RA. I HAD SO MANY FAVORITE ROCK BANDS, (STILL DO), BUT AFTER DISCOVERING THIS BAND EVEN THOUGH THEY AREN'T AS POPULAR -YET- THEY HAVE TOPPED MY PERSONAL CHARTS ON THE OTHERS. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM PUT ALL OF THEIR TEAM EFFORT AND BRING SOME SERIOUS TALENTS TO MAKE SUCH A GREAT MASTERPIECE.
RA ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!!!!!!
Best band ever.
I agree with Kaj, this is a great album and not quite a masterpiece. This album is definitely one of the best of the year. It is also their best one to date.
This album deserves 5 stars definitely. my top song list list:
1- Lost along the way (what a song...)
2- Push ( What an another song...)
And the voice of Sahaj: It's like they have 3 singers with different sounds, amazing.
Buy or buy.
5 stars mean masterpiece and it´s not, but it´s a great album!
Looking forward to hearing this album... Ra has been great over the past few years.
Definately their best album to date (which is quite an achievement, because they wear great ones 2). My favourites for the moment are "Lost along the way" and "Waste of Space". However, i dont really get it why u only gave it a 4-star rating. Your Review is full of praise, and there is no word on any disappointing song (well, there is none ;)). Of course 4 stars are good, but if ur closing comment is "Buy or die!", then there is nothing else than 5 stars to be expected.
Heck yah man, great band with a great sound!!! I love it!
