Comments:

This group have an appealing, very smooth sound that nonetheless retains some edges. The lead singers' harmonies sound assured, even if their youth is apparent. There's a similarity to The Corrs' radio-friendly sound a maybe a little to mid-period Cranberries. The cover of the pop hit "Cinderella" works but doesn't appeal much to me. The original songs are much better and easier on the ear. "The way" is an especially good with some stellar harmonies. "Sad Star" works fine and has a terrific tune. It's a very promising debut in all. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
