CD REVIEW: Seismic- Man From Space
By Steve Allat - 08/16/2004 - 12:54 AM EDT

Artist: Seismic
Album: Man From Space
CD Review: Label: Independent - Fusebox Records, NY.
Tracks: 11
Released: 2003
For Fans Of: Black Crowes, Counting Crows, Matchbox 20
Fav Tracks: Last Act Of A Friend, Queen Of The Rodeo, Spy Song.

Upbeat. Distinct Vocals. Self-described as 'boisterous' hits the mark. Fun all around.
In all ways, the 4 members of Seismic represent themselves well. Very well-spoken throughout and their music speaks volumes for their talent.
What grabbed my interest right away was the Terence Trent D'Arby'esque vocals and the powerful melodies. Explodes right from the start and never lets up.

Most of the tunes are very upbeat, and even the slower tunes take on a gentle upswing due to strong melodies and vocals. Every track has something to offer, each a little distinct while sounding exactly like Seismic. That kind of strong cohesion will carry these guys far. There isn't a weak link in the chain. If these kinds perform these songs nearly as well as they sound on the CD, then I can only see great things happening for them.

Self-produced with a little help and mastered by 2-time Grammy winner Todd Gerrard, this is a great sounding CD, even and clean throughout, letting the vocals and melodies speak for themselves.

Seismic appear to have registered a healthy 9 out of 10 on my index. That means that with ripples, you should be feeling the effects in your area sometime soon. If not, check them out for yourselves, they'll keep you entertained for a while.
