SOMETIMES X ‘Zero 2 Hero’ (Chavis Records 2002)

With a line-up of Tommy Redd (guitar/vocals), Monty Conner (bass) and Mickey Wade (drums) the band play riff laden rock in a modern vein, similar to Brother Cane or Collective Soul. ‘Guilty’ lays down the band’s sound, with heavy guitars and the use of distorted vocals - but not in an annoying way. ‘Shoebox’ could do well on radio with its memorable riff and the same can be said of ‘Touched’ as well. ‘Step Down’ slows it down with it’s grunge-like feel to it, coupled with Zeppelin style riffs.

‘Take’ is an acoustically tinged ballad with some nice harmony fills on the chorus, similar to that of Collective Soul and featuring a great guitar solo. ‘Color Me Gone’ trundles along nicely, nothing special but the closing track, ‘What I Like’ brings it all together. Heavy riffing with harmony vocals on the chorus and a mid-section instrumental workout, before it all comes back together at the song’s end.

One for fans of modern rock and a band who would sound immense in a live environment. A very short album, clocking-in at under thirty minutes but a band that don’t outstay their welcome.
