General comments:

Finding Stella is like suddenly discovering a late 1970s/early 1980s band. They rock just like that. Strong female vocals, loud guitar. This is mainstream rock as hardly anyone does it anymore. While not everyone is nostalgic for this kind of power rock, I'm sure Finding Stella will find and charm their audience. If this is the kind of power singing and power guitar you've been missing since rock splintered into punk and New Wave, you will love this. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)

Comments:

Hard-rocking, hard singing, Finding Stella's Famous will rock you. It's a little nostalgic, the riffs a little predictable, but a lot of fun. Hard to resist songs like "Famous" or "In The Hall." If you're like me, you'll find yourself tapping your foot and nodding your head before you realize it. I'll bet they're a powerhouse live. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
