I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone.
The EvO:R review section features reviews from various independent musicians that
submit material for our consideration.
I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music.
It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.
We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

Over the years we’ve seen rock, pop, and even hard rock slowly erode into over-commercialized,
corporate puppet shows providing music that is extremely sing songy, predictable, popish and
highly corporate. I hereby call this new breed of music “Poser Rock” and I want to personally
thank all the corporate giants for successfully transforming “Sex Drugs & Rock n’ Roll” into
“Yoga, Vitamins and Nikelback” Of course millions of musical lemmings don’t know the
difference and trust me when I say not everyone is entertained.

Talking to many music fans out there the response is overwhelming. Give me something new,
something fresh, something real.
So across my desk slides the new set of songs by San Francisco based Alternative Rock
band Stages of Sleep entitled “Carousel.” I have to say what I heard put a smile on my
face. It’s a rock solid record that delivers solid songwriting with a nice Orchestral
Stages of Sleep reminded me of a more psychedelic version of Sonic Youth with a
classic The Antlers and Bowerbirds guitar groove. You will also hear a side of
Alternative Rock, and Theatrical Americana along the way. If you like the above
bands you should definitely check out this CD. My favorite track is probably
“The Lesson.” This latest CD is invigorating. Invigorating in the sense that
it will lift your spirits, and give you a sense of hope that good music is
not officially pronounced dead yet.

The overall sound quality is amazing and
extremely vivid, but it’s almost as if you’re watching a band play live.
This CD is in fact a solid release with many solid grooves with a guitar
driven sound and entertaining vibe. At the d end of the day Stages of Sleep.
They also give us a fresh glimpse at an amazing artist and takes us back a
few years – before everything started sounding like – well like NIKELBACK.
