    About the Artist: Composer Fritz Limner (Burning Ships) just released his second CD entitled Empty Hold (2012). Burning Ships is based out of San Jose CA. and has received critical acclaim from many music critics from around the globe. With the release of his Debut CD ‘Empty Hold” and is set to achieve galactic domination.

    Review: Empty Hold is one release that certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is artist that brings to the table effective songwriting via a highly marketable musical delivery. This meshed with a one in a million Punk Pop Rock sound and effective visuals and vocals makes for a very effective combination no doubt.

    Burning Ships is just a breath away from Modern Pop or even Light Punk but skillfully and methodically never crosses the line into those realms. All songs are impressive snapshots - wonderfully simple but masterful in their overall arrangements. I can also hear a slight old school psychedelic UK Punk-esque touch to the music as well like Iggy Pop, Rolling Stones and Roxy Music. I might add Burning Ships is no slouch on all instrumentation and behind the mic. Music reminded me of a cross between The Velvet Underground and Todd Rundgren. This CD is quite entertaining overall with an amazing vocal front of Limner who is a musical triple threat in my mind. He is a world class songwriter; he has an amazing voice and a likeable musical personality.

    His lyrical content is straight from the heart and offers a very strong and confident male perspective and spirit. No doubt many females will love him as well. All song do exactly what they are meant to do via well-crafted movements and top tiered musicianship. The overall production value is superb with a crystal clear sound quality.

    Top Track: Sooth, Great Escape, M’Lady and the Painter’s Djinn

    Criticism: Burning Ships should put at least one “Bad or Naughty/ Bad Boy” statement on his CD that goes against the grain of the rest of the material. I think this will keep people guessing, off center and speak to even more rebellious fans in the process. Many of these complements are elements of classic punk anyway.

    Burning Ships (Fritz Limner) has proven himself with this latest release. Whoever he is - he is clearly an up and coming talent around San Jose, CA. He’s clearly capable musicians. I must admit Empty and Hold sucked me in like a powerful drug and refused to let go long after the music was over. This usually indicates he is something special about the artist or band in question. Thus deserving praise, recognition and musical fame at the international level.
