Sound — 10
This is a band that sounds like they were ripped right out of the '70s rock scene. American Minor is a fairly new band that most people don't know about but are definitly worth a listen. They right all of their own music and lyrics. You can realy tell their influences are the rolling stones, Led Zeppelin and many other classic rock bands. The classic rock/blues guitar leads are spectacular.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics on this record are top notch. The best in my opinion is walk on "You've got a thousand alibis, a thousand reasons why, but every single one's as transparent as the sky." All of the lyrics are sang perfectly to give as much emotion as posible, and they realy matches the song well.
Overall Impression — 10
This is one of the best albums out for a long time so its worth at least a listen or two. The most impressive songs on this cd would have to be "Break" (kinda heavy at the begining and then slows and melows out at the interlude in the midle and picks up again for a good finish), "Shine" (with solid guitar leads scatared through the song) and "Walk On" (has impresive lyrics and vocals and good rythm and leads all the way through the song). If somone stole this CD or I lost it I would cry and then go buy it again in a second.
