Where Can I Gets IT: Find this record on iTunes, Amazon, and local Record Shop.

Why Should I Listen Now: You shouldn’t but maybe you’ll have a nicer opinion than I.

Story of How I Found It: This album really got me going one fine Tuesday morning. In fact the morning this article is getting published I wanted to drive my car straight into the river bed listening to this album. If Wonder Bread had a soundtrack, Now Here is Nowhere by Secret Machines would probably be that record. I can’t believe anyone would compare the music in this album to Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. This isn’t even in that same musical cluster.

Seriously if you want to hear the most bland rock in your life throw this record on. You’ll be in for a super treat. I think I would give this record about 3 more points if the lyrics would stop. The lyrical content is subpar at best. It’s best if they would have just left them off.

You’re In for a Musical Experience Right here….

Giving this one a 5 for effort because the recording itself is good, but about 90% of the listening public doesn’t give two rats asses about how great something is recorded. If it makes people feel something special, then we’re talkin’. If not, it’s just another speck of musical dust in the solar system. 5/10
