    This band that started in the 90's had some great alternative rock staples and some great radio hits. I got into them upon hearing "Shimmer" of their debut and thought they had a good trio of albums before being rebranded with a new singer which is when I stopped caring about them. They have a great mix of heavy and balladish tunes. They aren't a band that really creates music outside the box so it's hard to wax poetic about them but they are a band that I'm sure still brings nostalgia when you hear the songs and they are a band with a solid vocaliasts, songwriting and musicianship! :cheers2

    Favorite Songs:

    Shimmer
    (Still my favorite I think, their best lyrically I think, after this they became kind of a hard rock ballad band :heheh:)


    Hemorrhage (In My Hands)
    (their biggest hit and understandably so)


    Fans be damned I've always like their covers of these two songs :D:

    AHA!! Finally a thread that I can relate to Soot!!:heheh:

    But... I really don't know any real specs on this band other than I have a few cd's of theirs and when I went over to more New Alternative groups they were a favorite.. One of the funnest songs I learned to play on Bass was Sunburn!!


    I'll dig back into my CD's and add some more later!! :grinthumb Oh and really like hemorrhage!!!

    I never heard of this band before! The first song "Shimmer" is the favorite out of them! "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" I enjoyed watching the clip to this song! I got shivers down my spine when he was holding the white roses with dripping red blood on the petals!

    Yaaaaay!!!!! Someone else favors 'Shimmer"! :D I "was" going to do that one on karaoke if that day had panned out. :tongue: Anyway, most people favor the second album material which is great but "Shimmer' is still my sentimental fav. :grinthumb
